Very pleasant. Shows fairly typical for Barolo. Tar, rose petal, orange peel, dark cherry and red berry. Maybe a little brawnier than other Barolos and fairly impressive structure. texture is missing a little finesse, and although the finish is good, it feels a little too overpowering. A very clean wine that shows zero Brett or autumnal leafiness that I personally like in my Barolos. All things considered a good wine, but not something I’d run out and buy more of.

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.
