Stored since release in my cellar. Excellent on opening but we could not finish it. Left in decanter at room temperature for two days it improved dramatically. Shocking for such an old wine. Very complex with a long finish. This suggests a very long decant. Original cost was $12
Impressive mature Barolo. Tannins have settled down and fruit carries the earth if Barolo forward. Paired this with Chicken & pomegranate with ground walnuts in the sauce and it was an outstanding combination for Barolo.
