    March 6, 2019 - Cork is fully saturated as of 3/6/2019--tasted one other bottle about two months ago where the cork was also fully saturated.

    The wine started off pretty one-dimensional. Leathery with bright notes of berries and a mineral aftertaste. Still pretty heavy on the alcohol, so we let the bottle breathe.

    After an hour, the nose switched to jam, tobacco, and melon. More tobacco on tasting with earth coming through. Berries deepened and sweetened--raspberry and cherry are my best guesses, with a little bit of melon like the nose. Long finish, ending with a nice chalky-minerality. Very nice wine with some more life left in it, so long as the cork holds out!

    December 1, 2018 - Leaky cork, but the wine was beautiful and open. Delicious dark berries, tar, earth, and floral notes on the nose and layered palate with fine tannins and a long finish. Paired beautifully with the delicious wild boar tenderloin at Gaetano's.

    November 16, 2018 - This magnum 2000 Riserva was the WOTN at my daughter’s 18th birthday dinner party. Double decanted for 2 hours and than 1 hour of resting in bottle. Accompanied main course of game ragout. More tannic and fresh fruitiness than I expected. Could easily lasted another 5 years in cellar. Deep and layered complexity, tar & orange peel and the typical Nebbiolo scent what you will recognize instantly. Color is still deep, though fading towards the color of red brick. Powerful, yet nuanced and balanced wine. Just wow!

    October 8, 2018 - Decanted for one hour. Still deep violet red. Similar to first encounter in 2010, but clearly more expressive now. Red cherry fruit really prominent on the nose, with tar, floral notes, vanilla (oak) and pepper. Almost heavy fruit on entry is kept light enough by the fine tannins and good acidity. Licorice/anise notes after midpalate as the fruit flavors recede a bit. Bit of heat on finish.
