Great bottle of wine. Started out a little rough, but it settled into a great place with 30 minutes of air. Brick red color and still a youthful Barolo that shows abundant tannins, and very pretty floral, tar, leather, and forest floor. Lovely plum and red berry fruit with silky texture. On the traditional side of the winemaking spectrum, but not so much so that the fruit would be lean. I wish I had more of this.
