  • As lovely as the oxidised, rusty color is, the nose and palate on the '06 Oeddero Villero are still tight and grapey, the palate being especially tannic. I goofed, never should have opened this but I knew that going in; sometimes I choose a wine with my heart instead of my head. Strangely the Oddero comes across as tannic without having a lot of structure or fruit. Perhaps it has shut down for the time being. The other bottle won't see the light of day for at least another five years.

  • Decant 1 hour. Red/brown color with some bricking on the edges. A bit of a floral aroma/herbs/leather. Very astringent right now... Makes your cheeks pucker in. Raisin/prune on the palette with maybe some red fruit. The tannins are overpowering. Not sure about this one... I'll try my other bottle in 5 or 10 years... But will it be any better then?

  • Terroir by Juancho Asenjo (Enoteca Barolo - Madrid): Much better than last time.
    Succulent nose with an elusive aroma of roses and earth.
    Pretty acid on the nose and still sightly tannic. Is this needing food?
    It's a textbook Barolo.

    Mucho mejor que la última vez
    Suculenta nariz con un elusivo aroma a rosas y tierra
    Bien ácida en boca y todavía ligeramente tánica. ¿Necesita comida cerca? Se reconoce que es una Barolo de libro.

  • Two per day, why not?; 7/29/2013-8/8/2013 (Enoteca Barolo - Madrid): Really strange.
    At first a perfect nose of rotten roses and tar. Fading very quickly, turning into a horrible medicinal smell.
    On the palate, acid, oaky and sharped, needing time to soft.
    Anyway it isn't my dirt of Barolo. Anytime.

    Realmente extraño.
    Al principio una nariz perfecta con rosas podridas y brea. Decayendo muy rápido y transformándose en un horrible olor a medicina.
    En boca ácido, amaderado y angulado necesitando tiempo para suavizarse.
    No es la clase de Barolo que me gusta de todas formas.

  • Old-world, elegant and refined with pretty notes of fresh strawberry and cherry along with smoke, leather, tar, licorice and a beautiful floral character. This is tightly wrapped in fine tannins displaying excellent focus and purity. The finish is ultra-long and chewy. Needs serious time to unwind. Aged in 20-hectoliter oak barrels for 30 months. (Best 2016-2026)
