this was a very pleasant surprise. Can't say i know a lot about the producer...

    Fill and cork condition outstanding. Is this a late release. I suspect not from bottle and label.

    Rich slightly cloudy mahogany color.

    Lovely mature barolo nose. A little funk at first, but with air, roses, damp earth, a hint of tar (but not a lot), autumn leaves.

    Very classy and old school palate of ripe cherries, fine dust, great acid and firm tannins. A lot of balance here. Definitely in a tertiary stage but holding on nicely and the acid really makes for a great food wine. (93 pts.)
