Community Tasting Notes 3

    May 22, 2017 - Day 1 in Piedmont (Vietti, Prunotto, & Bartolo Mascarello) (Piedmont, Italy): Brought from the States. Poured a dark brown color and had some sweet balsamic notes on the nose. We let this stand on the counter for a while, but it never turned the corner.

    February 16, 2011 - Opened this two nights ago--it was medium purple, had clear edges, minimal browning. Thick swirl--14% alcohol. Tannin 3, acid 3 fruit 3, glycerin 3. well balanced, but seemed tight despite some oxygenation. Faint hint of oranges, dried violets. Seemed better as the meal progressed. Kept wanting to drink a bit more. two of us drank about 2/3 the bottle. Corked it, placed it on the kitchen cabinet and went back to it this evening. What a nice surprise--opened up lots of orange, walnuts. Very smooth, initially suggestion of sweetness though very dry. Nice lingering aftertaste. This one has taken its time. The cork was removed with an ah so but was soft tho sound. 18.5/20 Got this in 1980 as a sale wine--list 18.99. It was very hard, tannic, and closed in. Probably why is was on sale as an 11 year old wine.

    December 2, 2005 - totally ruined and undrinkable with the nastiest funky tast i have ever seen from a bottle of wine. When will i learn not to buy old bottles of wine?
