A bargain for a Barolo

I thought Bordeaux's review was a bit harsh. Good Barolo's are pretty expensive and at $20, I thought this was reasonably priced for a 2001 vintage. I decanted for an hour or so before I drank it and was pretty pleased. Very drinkable. Perhaps not as big a wine as I was expecting, but a very pleasant bottle. You'll find better bottles of Barolo, but probably not in this price range.

This is my first Barolo and I don't know if the alcohol should cloud the taste so much like I felt this wine do. I did not feel anything special about this wine and I probably would not buy again.
