This is really special. A pale cinnamon color in the glass, this started off kind of meaty and porky, but mellowed out after about an hour to reveal lovely sour cherry fruit accented by hints of dusty cigar box/tobacco, rose petals, woodsmoke, tamari and shiitake mushrooms. The palate retained its sweetness and clarity throughout the evening, and the wine never faded before the bottle was, alas, all gone. A terrific example of mature Barbaresco that's still a touch tannic, yet superbly balanced and very much still alive and kicking. Wish I had more.
