Had this on Monday night at Eleven Madison Park while having dinner with my brother and his significant other. Lovely wine that delivered incredible value. From one of my favorite producers of Barolo, this wine left no doubt that it is cut from the same cloth as Brovia’s Barolos. While supremely elegant and nuanced, this wine is at once powerful and impressive. Very floral and earthy flavors and aromas mark this wine along with a very appealing sensation of wet autumn leaves. Plum and crunchy red berry fruit that ia sappy and were the perfect companion with our beef tenderloin “sous vide” and sauce bordelaise.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
