Barolo and Barbaresco (Nov 2013)

Good bright red. Deep, ineffable aromas and flavors of red cherry, redcurrant, rose petal, menthol and flinty minerality. Rich, concentrated and fine-grained, with captivating early perfume giving the wine outstanding inner-mouth tension. Finishes with substantial noble, mouthcoating tannins and superb length. Grasso compared this wine to the 1989.
