It opens to bright cherry and dried raspberry that set the tone for the abundant primary fruit that defines the bouquet. Those red berry flavors cede to cola, spice, mint and rosemary essence. There is an almost exotic quality here spurred forward by pressed blue flower and church incense. However, the big takeaway here is the sheer energy and resonance of this classic Barolo.- ML

Wine Spectator, September 2020
Sweet, ripe plum and black cherry fruit marks this mouthfilling red. Late summer pastures, mint and licorice accents chime in, and this shows plenty of grip on the compact finish. Best from 2023 through 2045. 150 cases...   Sweet, ripe plum and black cherry fruit marks this mouthfilling red.

This shows density and polish with lots of chewy tannins, which are medium-grained and give the wine form. Pretty ripe fruit in the center palate. Needs two or three years to come together. Better after 2022.
