Lean and relatively charmless wine dominated by its structure. Reticent nose shows hints of figs, prunes, and smoke. Sinewy texture with astringent tannins and an earthy edge to the meager fruit. I am inexperienced with Barolos and perhaps this is a great example of one, but to my taste it just didn't provide much pleasure. - HK 2017-12-31
