A very nice, moderately priced (on release) Barolo. With 13 years from vintage, this one is in a great place. Garnet in color, mostly clear and bright. The nose has hot tar, cherries, spice and char. Medium bodied. Firm tannins. On the palate, nice cherry fruit with some complexity. Good acidity. Nice finish. This will work better with food. Pasta with a mushroom cream sauce was perfect. Drink over the next five to eight years.
