Natalie's Score: 88/100

Not too heavy, but loaded with black fruit flavour and some tarry notes. Supple and full-bodied with dried herbs.

Barolo food pairings: red meats, especially braised or roasted served with a rich red wine reduction, hard cheeses such as pecorino and parmesan, the older the better, quality dark chocolate.

Darren rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

2011 birthday gift from the Cheungs.
Everthing is here as this 2005 is rounding into maturity. Great power, grace, complexity, and elegance. Warm, soft lingering taste, quite full and velvety with dried cherry and smoky notes on a balanced finish
