  • A special bottle for Sam's 70th birthday. When opened it was pale and thin looking. Over the next half hour it thickened and darkened somewhat. But despite the appearance, it was a classic barolo. The nose was soft, but had minerality and floral notes (but no tar) that was very pleasing. The palate was actually chewy and earthy and rich with nebbiolo fruit. Still it came off as fragile and we drank it up over the next two hours and it started to fade in the last 15 minutes. Overall a great bit of history and a pleasure.
