This remains the legend. Very dark color ruby. Masses of crushed raspberry and blackberry on the nose. Lots of vanilla and violet, as well as hints of tangerine. Full-bodied, with ultrafine tannins and a dense, yet harmonious palate. It has lots going on. Wonderful. Hard not to drink now, but will improve for decades.
Terrific aromas of blackberies, toasted oak and cedar with hints of Cuban tobacco. Full-bodied, with a phenomenal richness and balance...Layers upon layers of fruit and ripe tannins. Mindblowing. How can Nebbiolo be better?
The greatest wine from Piedmont in years. The perfect Barolo. Spellbinding, with a concentration of fruit that leaves me speechless. Amazing fruit aromas, like a reduced raspberry sauce, yet there's a complexity, with hints of spices and toasted wood. Full-bodied, with a wonderful concentration of fruit. Big and velvety, yet refined and caressing. A treat to drink now, but this is a wine to cellar for decades.
[I]s the greatest young wine I have tasted from Piedmont. The perfect Barolo. It's breathtaking, with a concentration of fruit that leaves me speechless. It's big and velvety yet refined and caressing with layers of fruit and tannins. It will be a new benchmark for Barolo...
