had a lovely, layered nose with a gamey edge. Some menthol with spicy green herbs and a very high toned nuance of oyster shells dominated at first but lovely notes of roast meat and marrow like sweetness became apperant with time. In the mouth the wine showed admirable richness with still some structure to burn, lovely red berries across the midpalate, big acidity peeking out on the finish, a great showing for the 67. Apon revisiting the palate added richness up front with a chewy, leathery ripeness that turned the midpalate a bit tough with some obvious tannin that the fading fruit doesn't quite manage to cover, lots of licorice on the finish. Very close to 4 star quality but it just misses

Just phenomenal color here and the nose offer distinct contrast to the 64. Much greater freshness here with great mineral notes under quite fresh and typical notes of cherry and green herb. With time the developes a deep core lightly roasted meat/veal stock reduction and top notes of cigar tobacco and cigar ash as well as a touch of spice. Great richness in the mouth with balance and finesse that the 64 didn't have. The mineral and cool fresh fruit are in perfect harmony with admirable tension in the mouth. Complicating notes of smoke, coal, and incipient decay add depth. Absolutely at peak. 2008-2014

Quite evolved on the nose with pungent notes of onion powder, asphalt, oyster shells, dried fruit and bay leaf tones. In the mouth the texture is perfectly mature with fine balance tot he black tea tinged dried red fruit notes. With time the tannins become a touch angular yet remain balanced by the sweetness of maturity. this has great length and resonance but is past peak and beginning to fray. 90pts

Coming from a frequently passed over vintage, this Barolo continues to surprise with its depth of flavor and panoply of aromatics that recall autumn fruits and forest floors. One of the most Burgundian expressions of mature Nebbiolo we have encountered.
