A bit closed, hard, clean, pure and ungenerous on the nose, a touch woody/woodsy, not toasted wood a bit big, a bit clumsy in the mouth on entry , quite fresh, deep but closed a bit tough, nice rigid feel, good fruit, fresh, mineral and savory, nice firm finish, fruit skin finish, savory and long, very promising.

Cleansing aromas of roast beef and carob, touches of ginseng and lightly spice French oak, clean, sapid, nice feel, almost a bit fleshy but very bright, with a nice background tone of agrumi peels and savory herbs, and a touch of French oak. Drying, a bit lean, nice balance, could use some more fruit, interesting, lots of agrumi on the finish.

AWE blind tasting - roasted fruit, balsamic, roasted meat, very fluid in the mouth, kind of refreshing but without much flavor or interest, nice bit of tar and biter raspberry, 84-85

AWE blind tasting - very jammy, lots of roses, sweet bay leaf, sweet fruit on entry, then rather shallow and mostly uninteresting across the palate, theres some very fine sweet tannin here, but not much flavor interest, a bit of an earthy red fruit finale, 84-85

Lovely ripe nettle notes at first on the nose, then tarry with nuances of cocoa and caraway, slight VA, sandy and cigar ashy mineral notes. Big and round entry with slightly soft acidity, chewy if a touch simple and quite drying and astringent without adequate buffering material. Nicely clean and focused flavors with dark, roasted strawberry toned fruit and a bit spicy notes recalling the nose but ultimately a bit too simple to be outstanding.

This opened with admirable freshness to the smoky layers of sweet decay that gained depth with notes of clay, dark cherry fruity spicy herbal topnotes, and it's edge of cheesiness. In the mouth This was both round and very resolved, Very peachy upfront followed by red berry fruit and a touch of pink peppercorn. Good acidity adding great brightness to the flavors which finish with great wild berry/ lingonberry tones. By the time we got to this flight, 8:30 or so, this had become musty, the nose was sour and dark with funky notes and a sandy/leather tone. In short order it was declared to be corked and while it was I was glad to have had that initial moment with it at 2:30. This is a lovely bottle that i have enjoyed before but tonight it was the sacrificial lamb

Riserva which was the color of iced tea when opened yet retained a peppery, leather scented, typical nose of very evolved nebbiolo. This filled in and darkened in an amazing way looking fully red and downright youthful by the time we got to it. The nose remained very evolved with shoe leather, glue, charcoal and bouillon notes dominating with a touch of peppery spiciness. In the mouth this is fairly resolved and probably half a dozen years past peak but the more time it was given the better it got as it revealed a gently sweet core of fading fruit touched with a nuance of cinnamon like spice and lovely notes of decay. There remained solid acidity and tannins adding to the appeal of the mouthfeel. This bottle was mid-shoulder fill and showed well though I expect better bottles to offer a complete experience.

92 Points - Wine AdvocateThe 2005 Barolo a multi-commune wine made from vineyards in Monforte, Serralunga and Castiglione Falletto. It is a terrific, over-achieving wine in this vintage, with plenty

Typische, sehr saubere Nebbiolo-Aromen in der Nase, Rumtopf, Pflaumen, süssliche Rosinen und Unterholznoten. Herrliche Fülle und cremig im Mund, feurig die Tannine, dennoch viel Schmelz und Harmonie.

90 Points - Wine Advocate"The estates 2004 Barolo reveals impressive depth in its layers of ripe dark fruit, menthol, spices, tobacco and earthiness. The wine gets better and better in the glass, yet this is a rather firm style of Barolo that is sure to benefit from a slumber in the cellar. This Barolo is aged in a combination of small barrels and larger casks."
