Youthful but very enjoyable now, especially for fellow acid freaks. At first, candied strawberry, with balancing acidity and tannins (both high). Given some time, more traditional Barolo notes emerge... highly aromatic violets and rose hips, with a bit of sandalwood and light tobacco behind sour cherry. This might sound like other Barolos, but it’s significantly different, and from a more ethereal plane. Likely one of those wines that would be tough to nail down with age due to high aromatics and sweet fruit, which would be less prominent with 10-15 years of age. Perfectly happy now, in my glass.

Very youthful. Needs a lot time to open up, looking forward to opening one again in about 5-7 years
