Tasting Note:

Although many were hard work to taste young because of their sheer intensity and structure, 2006 seems to be living up to its billing as a great vintage. The tannins are starting to soften a touch and allow the fruit out of its cage, though it must be said many are like this wine and still need several years in bottle to be at their most desirable. But what promise. Gripping, tense, lively and fresh. Clearly more tannic than the 2012s it was tasted alongside but there is tremendous purity and sweetness of fruit to counteract the colossal structure. Complex notes of mocha and Asian spices mixed with racy cherry and cassis fruit. Thrillingly fresh and edge. A titan amongst Barolos. A vineyard that is only ever released after ten years in bottle, first released in the 2003 vintage. The ageing is the same as the rest of the Cru; two years in barrel, with an additional seven years in bottle. Up to 300 cases are made annually.
