Rarely do I see many Barolos under $30.00. I was impressed and thought this one was a great quality wine. Medium body with a wonderful bouquet. Currant, cherry, leather. Nice dry tannin. I will buy a few more to enjoy during the week..lol. I like to keep my better bottles for weekends and special evenings

Attack has many of the same flavours, but the finish is jarringly astringent. In the end, this seems more like a facsimile of Barolo rather than the real thing.
