    Pale, orange rim.
    Roses, tar, leather, tobacco, orange peel.
    Rippling tannins.
    So complex, so good.

    I plan on pulling one of these out for a dinner I have to attend this Saturday. I had a 02 of this same wine last summer that was lovely. Did you decant? I am wondering if this would benefit from a quick double decant.
    Thanks in advance

    if I recall correctly I opened mid morning & let it slow ox for about 5-6 hours and decanted around a hour or so prior to drinking.
    Lovely wine, more Barbaresco than Barolo.
    The orange, citrus notes were striking.
    Hope you enjoy
