Wine Review: This bright red colored Barolo is very nice. It opens with a fragrant strawberry and oak bouquet with a hint of red cherry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and savory. The flavor profile is a mineral infused strawberry with notes of old oak and morels. I also detected a hint of red plum. The finish is very dry and its dusty tannins linger and last for quite some time. This Barolo would pair well with a porterhouse steak. Enjoy - Ken

"Wine to me is passion. It’s family and friends. It’s warmth of heart and generosity of spirit. Wine is art. It’s culture. It’s the essence of civilization and the art of living."
