Everything about this Barolo is sensational, from the aromatic notes of eucalyptus and wintergreen to the bright cherries on the palate to the smooth, spicy finish. There's nothing tired or off about this approachable middleweight. The spicy, drying tannins seem right, as do the rooty undernotes and overall balance. It's not overwhelming or too demanding, so it can be drunk in the near future. But holding it for 10 years is also an option.
