Community Tasting Note

    March 21, 2009 - When I uncorked the bottle, cork showed that bottle got hot at one time with balanced seepage 3/4 of way through cork... thought I was going to cry at first until I saw the classic Nebbiolo red-orange-brick color for this age, and experienced the nose (bottle has been stored in perfect conditions since I purchased it from Dean & Deluca 4+ years ago). I decanted 4+ hours prior to drinking, and nose was beautiful but still a little tight. This is a Classic. Nice structure, with plenty of tannins for drinking in several years. I did not at all regret opening before it's full potential to see how it drank, and how it will evolve. Can't wait to open another bottle in 5-10 years, which may drink perfectly.
