at Ciano: This was a lovely wine, resolved now and very deep and rich on the palate, filled with typical Nebbiolo cherry and cedar, and finishing with a nice white fruit zing to it. I really enjoyed this wine.
New York bids adieu to Sharon Bowman (Dougherty's): A good whiff of volatile acidity before more pleasant aromas of cherries, roses, leather and cedar escape the glass. The theme the past couple of wines seems to be comfortably soft and fairly resolved and this wine fits right in. It's softened and drinking quite nicely. Plenty of cherries, earth, cedar and leather on the palate with an interesting apricot/peach pit note. The wine is a bit chunky on the finish. While talking to Greg dal Piaz about it today he informed me this is actually Barolo that didn't go into the Brunate or Cannubi bottlings. B+.
