Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 95(+?)

Very good medium-deep red. Knockout Barolo nose in all its rustic splendor, showing everything from exotic fruits to smoke, game, tobacco, camphor and white truffle. Urgent, penetrating and supersweet, with nearly candied red fruit flavors saturating the palate. A youthfully aggressive wine that really needs a few years to calm down. Finishes with strong but fine tannins and great ripeness.

Dark ruby with slightly orange/garnet rim. Red fruit, fog/white-smoke, mountain air, some old leathery quality. Dry but fine tannins. How it changed over the course of its consumption was the real pleasure, though. Fantastic in its final form. Was initially thin and floral, almost feminine with clean, well defined, delicate, fruit. Then, after +2 hours in the decanter, something eerie happened. The wine grew into something utterly villainous and seemed to put on a black cape. It gave us the impression that this villain lived on top of some foggy mountain. This wasn't a decadent wine - it was evil! In a good way. Had a great time.
