    January 12, 2020 - Now why didn't I buy more of this!!?? Drinking very well now, but won't hold up for more than a couple of days even when using a Vacu Vin stopper, ounce opened. Guess you'll just have to drink it with friends.

    Dark, full bodied, and a three ring circus in your mouth. Sooo much good stuff going on in there. Earthy, spicy, with just the right amount of cherry and softened tannins.

    October 5, 2019 - Amazing nose with cherries, roses, Tobacco, tar, tea and leather. On the palate long and well balanced, with rich fruit and noticeable but also well integrated tannin. Perfect food wine.

    August 18, 2019 - A Bricco delle Viole Vertical with Giuseppe Vaira (Fausto, Brooklyn, NY): [Double decanted at 1:30pm.] Muted smoky cherry nose Big rich juicy. A beautiful wine. I'm consistently amazed at how well these 2008 continue to show. 93--95

    July 4, 2019 - Lite frukt igjen, voldsom forandring siden 2017 og 2018, da frukten var dominerende.

    February 16, 2019 - Still pretty closed aromatically, but so full of potential and such a perfect texture and mouthfeel. Notes of rose petals, violets, red berries, mint and some tar. It‘s medium+ bodied, feels almost weightless in the context of Barolo, has medium-high acidity and medium-high tannin that is excellent quality and very silky. Excellent length. A still slightly reductive but superb Bricco delle Viole. I would still give this another 3-4 years.
