delicious but did not budge on night one or night 2
so another bottle needing a long decant or more sleep time
will be a reward if you can keep your hands off this for awhile

looked back at a note from 2017 where there was some age on the nose, so there is some bottle variation

remains quite youthful but with so much elegance
drink with a decant or leave alone as it enters a prolonged drinking window

youthful but delicious
starting to integrate but could use a long decant or more prudent would be some more sleep time

flavorful and magnificent
a trace of lemon but the majority of fruit flavors were melon in nature
went well with salmon but sipped on it's own too
liked by all

kept waiting for this to express something; Anything! but it did not, so made me think it is shut down at this time
Reminded me of the parties you go to where the host serves 5.00 wine and everyone loves it except if you know anything about wine.
how many friends have told me they cannot go to a party anymore and drink wine after they have tasted some of my cellared libations
I am proud and happy to have made a difference in some peoples lives
However this Lisini did nothing for me

very early in it's drinking window
still some tannic bitterness but starting to integrate
should be worthwhile to hold off for a year or two or give it a long decant

time has been good for this dark brooding beauty
tart fruit with rich blackberries
left in fridge for 3 days and held it's own so plenty of life left

probably a little too early in it's drinking window, so a good hour + decant suggested
notes of blueberries and Italian mud
delicious

singing right out of the bottle with tart fruit and italian earth beginning to integrate
early in what should be a nice drinking window

Has not stood the test of time for me since first trying at the wine shop with the producer
Made in a new world fashion that does not have the length or depth that I like
Easy to see when tasted next to other barbarescos
Nevertheless a good table wine with burgers and such

dry as a bone
glad I opened this one because the salmon sucked!
This was good with food and on its own

1st day so grassy thought I was drinking sauvignon blanc
3rd nite was still not great for rose
so let this sleep till next summer by my view

brought late to the soiree and therefore not decanted
started to open up on the second tasting but then none left with all the thirsty sipper
not the worn at osteria langue this evening[that goes to the 1990 giacosa barb red label and the 1998 conterno barolo]but pretty darn good

classic chard on first night
more interesting and integrated on 3rd night
I think 6-12 months sleep time would be helpful

early in it's drinking window life
tannins still overwhelm the fruit at first, but after 45 min settled down into a good spot with cherries earth and a long length
years of life left
an old world effort worth seeking out and great qpr

the type of taste burgundy lovers dream about
beautiful bouquet with earthy structure in harmony
the only heartbreak was how quickly it was devoured by our thirsty group
wotn in darien last evening
2014 tasted a lot younger and needed more time fyi

soft and a lovely fruit bouquet
not enough backbone when paired with lamb chops
so better on it's own tonite
