From magnum. Acquired recently, opened to accompany traditional Danish Xmas dinner (yes, early) of roast goose stuffed with apples and prunes, roast potatoes, red cabbage and brussels.

From the moment opened, the wine emitted strong prune, licorice, and alcoholic cherry aromas. The wine was double decanted a couple of hours before pouring and was showing signs of some age, like most other 2000 Barolos that I've had.

A very strong Barolo, it had a real intensity of prune and cherry flavours, good acidity, fine but evident tannins. Leather developed on the nose as we progressed over the evening. It had a long finish which was slightly hot (14.5% abv). A really intense, moreish wine, savoury and long. Great experience, worked perfectly with the goose and accompaniments. 94 pts.
