Opened today a bottle acquired from the cellar of Ristorante Barolo in NY City which closed in 2013. Excellent wine, well preserved, of the old Barolo school. Light brilliant ruby color, only the nose showed the age. No sediments. A hint of tobacco.
A mid-weight wine that showed pleasantly enough as a mature Nebbiolo from a mid-tier producer. On day 2, however, there were bursts of tobacco on the nose and mouth that I really enjoyed. Lifted the wine from an 89 to a 91.
