Community Tasting Note

  • Breaktheory Likes this wine: 88 points

    January 16, 2018 - I think I’m giving up on buying young barbaresco and barolos - not a bad wine but clearly needs another 5 years before beginning to show potential - leather plum menthol licorice and dark berries but all overwhelmed by tannins that need a few years to integrate - it opened up after about 3 hours to something more flavorful but not something I would buy again - I think a Nebbiolo younger than 10 years is just something I won’t be buying again
