Wine Review: This dark red colored Barolo opens with mild black cherry bouquet with a hint of red raspberry. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and savory. The flavor profile is a tasty mild old oak and strawberry licorice blend with hints of gentle black cherry-cola. The finish is dry and its building dusty tannins roll on for a very very long time. If you like long finishes, this wine is for you. That said, I would drink it over the next several years. I would decant it and serve it with a well-marbled ribeye 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."
