It delivers immediate tones of black fruit, spice and nutmeg. Give it time in the glass and a background chorus of cola, tar, licorice and brimstone slowly increase in volume and tone. The mouthfeel is forceful, but finessed, with bright acidity and integrated tannins. Despite the warm vintage, the wine is beautifully crafted and will withstand the years. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2030. - Monica Larner collapse

Sweet rose petals meld into herbs, dark cherries and flowers in the glass. Mint and licorice overtones appear later, as does the wine's minerality, expressed by clean veins of underlying salinity. This beautifully balanced, focused Barolo is without question one of the highlights of the vintage. collapse
