($150) Good medium red. Exotic aromas of dried fruits, spice cake and nuts. Fat, sweet and full but with lovely floral perfume and vinosity; this, too, offers quintessential Barolo aromatic complexity and solid underlying acid/tannin backbone. A bit more expressive and showy today than the Rocche, but without quite that wine's depth. The full tannins reach the front teeth.

Paired with grilled ribeye steaks, grilled green onions and country fried potatos. Light garnet in color already being consumed by orange hues throughout. Nose really jumps out of the glass, very purfumed with strong floral noted and crushed rose pedals. this wine peaked at 2 hours in the decanter and really started to show meaty forward round fruit and soft well integrated tannins. Very elegant and perfectly balanced wine made in the traditional style of barolo. I do have to question the lifespan of this wine. its drinking beautifully now and at least for the next 5 years. I will open another bottle in a couple years just to make sure. If you own more than one, open one now and enjoy.
Especially impressive for firm but elegant tannins. Rich in raspberry, leather and anise aromas. Refined and balanced w/ abundant flavors of chocolate and tobacco. Big! Enjoy next 3 to 20 years
