Opened 2 bots 1 hour before Christmas dinner.... and was enjoyable for dinner but massive dryness on the end which paired well with the prime rib... HOWEVER, the last glass and a half 24 hours later were AMAZING. I' rate the first day experience in the 88-89 range, but 24 hours later, 94-95. Still years left to enjoy this.
Very pretty perfumed nose of rose petals, rose hips and tar. Not yet ready. Surprised how hard and tannic this is given the vintage. Reserving my rating for now as I don't think this is ready yet. Needs another decade possibly. Hard as nails.
This was excellent. Considered a "modern" producer, but this wine was very elegant. It had it all: fruit, earth, depth, complexity, etc. A very nice wine. I am finding the 2003 Baroli to be underrated as a vintage.
