TASTING NOTES

"Wonderful aromas of crushed berries, from strawberry to raspberry. Full-bodied, with big, velvety tannins and a long, fruity finish. Dense and balanced. Needs time to soften. A precise red. Best after 2013. 1,200 cases made." Wine Spectator

"The 2005 Barolo achieves superb balance in this vintage. The wine shows the freshness of the growing season, but also possesses striking density in its fruit that carries all the way through to the long finish. Sweet spices, menthol and red fruit are some of the nuances that can be found in this soft, beautiful wine." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Mid youthful ruby. Reticent on the nose but there is clearly a lot going on – and vibrantly – underneath. Admirable freshness. Pretty dry on the end. Unfortunately I think this was served just a little too warm to shine – a lesson here!" JancisRobinson.com
