Still going strong. Not a lot of acidity left, leather on the nose, reddish-brown color. Lovely.

It's a little funky right away when opening it, but settles down quite fast and becomes rather wonderful then. Still drinking beautifully two days later, and regretfully it's my last bottle. Would have wished for a couple more

It's a much better bottle than the last one, but you have to be patient and let the wine air out. Right after opening the acidity is overpowering, a taste of sour cherries. But after a couple of hours, it mellows out and becomes much more enjoyable

Lovely Nebbiolo. Bit of a rusty red color, smooth taste without much tannins or acidity

After opening, too acidic. Heavy aeration helped the wine to develop and was much better that following day

Problematic. There's a good structure in there, and is pleasant on the nose but the taste is so acidic it is hard to find enjoyment in this bottle. A flawed batch.

Still a very powerful and vibrantly powerful wine, with plenty of life left. Dark reddish brown color. Plenty of blackcurrant fruit on the nose. Beautiful work.

A little tart at first, was worried I waited too long, but after a while it opened up beautifully. Drinking fantastic the second day, I'm seriously impressed with this quality

Very good, aged nicely. Doubtful if it'll improve with further cellaring though

Very closed at first, opened and decanted an hour before dinner. Aeration didn't have much of an effect until about three hours later when it finally started to open up in the glass. Old leather, tough as nails and very dark with lots of tannins

Lots of tannins, prunes, pencil shavings. A little harsh and not too accessible, but a lovely wine with a boeuf bourgognion.

Classic Bordeaux, lots of blackcurrants on the nose. Definitely can do with five more years in the cellar

Unfortunately it's well over due... Resemblance of a oxidized Jerez sherry rather than a Brunello

Love this, like a mature Bordeaux. Not very complex but with good structure and some tannins and a bit of acidity
