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.
Still drinks youthfully, and needs an hr. in the decanter at this point. Transparent crimson with very slight bricking at the edges. Aromas of tar and black tea, with a hint of rose petal wanting to come out. Medium body, medium+ acid and finish, with flavors of cherry, plum, dry leaves, leather and oak spice. Give the last one 2-3 more years.
