Community Tasting Notes (11) Avg Score: 90.6 points

  • Notes from night 3 - way too young on night 1 even with a 3 hour decant (served with grilled lamb chops). Clear meniscus with some color change to medium red center. Tar, menthol, black cherry, red currants on nose. On palate, black cherry, sour cherry, earthy with high acidity & medium+ body (might have guessed Barolo if tasted blind). Nice long finish. Lots of potential but wait a few years as Wine-Strategies recommended in note below. 92+ (should improve a few points with age).

  • Underbar doft med kryddor, te, läder, lakrits, körsbär och apelsinskal. Viss bitterhet och lite varm känsla, men på det stora hela mycket trevligt.

  • {Visit to Produttori del Barbaresco} The final wine tasted during our meeting, Aldo watches my reactions to the first taste and, even if he doesn't say it, I know inside he's very proud of this lovely creation (I would not want to play poker against Aldo). Tasted immediately after the '09 Sordo, this is more of everything, yet very well balanced - as all of the PdB wines always are. More balsamic and earthy than the '09, it's also fresher, with tannins that are sweet and incredibly round. The finish is longer, too, but all of this today is just a glimpse into what it's going to be with just 2-3 more years of rest. The final sip really highlights the joyous interplay between the core of sweet fruits and the lively, fresh acidity. highly recommended

  • confermo nota precedente, entrambe le bottiglie perfette e si bevono benissimo. Naso floreale con un bel frutto in evidenza. La bocca allo stesso tempo mostra grazia e potenza.
