Took a bit of time to come around, but this is a very solid effort. Lovely black cherries, tar, forest floor, and some cherry liquor on the finish. Firm tannins and finish that didn't quick. This is still young and needs a long decant. Really evolved over the evening w/ air time.
In a beautiful place, and starting to open up again. The tannins are starting to soften a bit, and there's beautiful bright red fruit on a foundation of acidity and earth. Screamingly good with tajarin with truffle and mushrooms.
Slow-O'd for a few hours...I'm digging this, but I think it's bordering on an awkward phase...still quite tannic and not a ton of fruit to balance it...so I think this wine would have been better young, or with a few more years. Right now it's in-between but shows as a very classic example of barolo, which was a very nice pair with food.
