much more depth of color than the older wines, bright and youthful with a dark ruby core. quite profound nose with piercing menthol and wild cherry tones with an herbal top note, sweet licorice, a bit of smoke, dried rose, just a hint of funkiness, a great nose. Rich entry with a citrussy quality to the acidity, lacks a little depth at first and finishes very short, still a bit of astringency across the mid-palate, very 1974, really grows and fills out with time adding some upfront sweetness which eventually is able to compensate for the light astringent note, lovely, bright lingonberry fruit here leads to a long finish. Great bottle.

Musty and funky on the nose with a number of tasters calling TCA, though I don’t believe that to be the case. This had that musty, chlorine driven aromas that is not uncommon with Barolo of a certain age. It does seem like the wine is corked at first, but the issue diminishes with air, unlike actual TCA which almost always gets worse and more imposing with air. Under the mustiness there were hints of game meat, truffles, and minty on the nse, all fairly typical of ths wine, if not this vintage. A little lean on the palate, this shows nice depth to the seedy flavors that leads to subtle wild cherry and sandalwood tones in the mouth. There’s a hint of chlorine on the backend and some soy notes before this fades on the short yet balanced finish. On it’s own this would have held my interest but in this company this was a clunker. 84pts
