Decanted 1 hour. Brick color. Classic Nebbiolo aromas, the dominating smell of wood upon opening blew away in the decanter (luckily). Available tannins and good acidity. The fruit is still present and you feel an earthy tone.
Clearly some bottle variation since my last bottle was over the top and heading downhill. This bottle was still fresh and quite enjoyable. Wonderful to risotto made with mushrooms.
Clean, medium(+) intensity, fully developed with aromas of cherries (red), tobacco, anis and noble wood, mushrooms and there is a floral scent that I can't categorize. The wine smells wonderful. Palate: Red cherries (slightly sour), tobacco, mushrooms. At its peak with medium+ acidity, medium tannins, body and intensity, medium+ length. This bottle was significantly better than the two last ones I've had
Mature with cherry and dark berry fruit, rose, leather and tar aromas. Perhaps just a touch of VA on the nose as well, but not enough to be distracting but merely another dimension. Medium-plus bodied with mostly integrated tannins leaving a velvety texture with good acidity. Good length. Still held up the next day, so while I don't think this will improve with more time, I do believe it should be able to hold a few more years.
