    April 26, 2022 - Molto Bene Nota Bene! (Vino Loco & Lolo's Seaside Tasting Lodge): Part of an eight vintage vertical tasting. Bit of funk and oxidation on the nose. Not corked but definitely old world-like with the fruit taking a back seat to the evolving tertiary aromas and flavours. At first, there was a barnyard, saddle, chemistry-set nose of funk and severity. This blew off a bit over the two hours but it was a mature, savoury fruit nose of brandied plums and currants with tobacco and dried sage. Medium-plus body held up a stewed mix of red fruits. Oak and alcohol in cheque. Tannins were still a little firm. Not sure this will get better in the cellar. This was #6 across the group. Open now, decant, have with roasted rack of lamb.
