  • this was not showing too brown of an edge tasted like it was 3 yrs past its prime, jammy, raisinated and sun baked

  • Cherry - brick in color. Still has good acidity with roses with some black currant and tobacco. Held up over two nights with gassing it. Not as great as a barolo for sure, but closer to a basic barbaresco of the same age. I think it should be consumed over the next year or two as it won't likely improve. Great QPR though.

  • Another great bottle of this "should-have-been" barolo. Essentially the same notrs as my 2012 tasting except this presents a little less tar, but a beguiling nose of roses and bouquet de garni. The flavor profile is much the same as before and it just carries on indefinitely. No sign of peaking.

  • Suprisingly I thought this was a bit tight, it was more open on the second day. Really nice concentration and a super long finish. I think this will open out over the couple of years.

  • Way tighter than the last bottle. 3-4 hours in, barely a dent in the tight cloak this wine has drawn around its core of fruit and complexity. All it shows is tart cherry, acid, tannin, and some earthiness typical to Italy. The last bottle of this we opened had been subject to much more temperature variation, had been moved twice, stored at higher temp, and came across beautifully. Apparently, the precise storage of this bottle has truly delayed its drinking window. Interesting experiment, we'll be drinking all of the other bottles before getting back into this batch.
