One of my favorite Barolos.  Still, slightly to the modern side (as that distinction means less and less).  At age 11, this is still young but drinking great.  Ruby in color, purple at the core.  The nose has tar, black cherries and cherries.  With air, some dusty rose notes.  On the palate, this has a lovely texture.  Still tannic.  Lots of cherry fruit, some black cherries with some underlying spices.  This wine is very lively.  Long finish.  It is drinking well but may still improve a bit.  Either way, it should be good for another fifteen years at least.  It will work great with mushroom dishes or roasts.
