Is this the most accessible 2011 barolo ever? Gorgeously floral and bright with very fine tannins.

Young, but delicious. Lunchtime wine with a touch of nostalgia in the face of the shocking news of Vietti's sale.

A bit tight and tannic yet but with great structure and amazing depth. Another 5+ years and this will rock.

Incredible depth and beauty. The only way to know this wine is to spend a complete evening smelling it.

Classic dark, brooding Barolo. Fruit, acid and tannins play well together. Surprisingly approachable now.
