Community Tasting Notes 4

    December 30, 2021 - Nose of anise, tar, cherries, dried herbs, darker red berries. Palate is still somewhat youthful, though the oak is integrated and tannins starting to mellow. Lacks a little bit of depth to the fruit that concerns me for longevity, but it held up okay over two days.

    Nice enough, but I had expected a bit more based on recent notes.

    December 27, 2021 - Well intigrated and ready to drink. Great aroma of a tar/truffle. Good enjoyable acid levels. Soft dried red fruits.

    October 26, 2021 - "Baby Masseto" and a Night of Nebbiolo through the Decades (Charlotte, NC): Three hour decant. A grand Barolo that drinks well young? You have one right here. Aromas of ripe dark cherries, soft leather, and tar. Showed excellent body with rich, rustic flavors and soft leather texture. Classic Barolo in every way. Measured acidity and resolved tannins. Long smooth finish. A real joy to drink

    April 6, 2021 - Very woody nose with some sour fruit. Happily, the sourness does not appear on the tongue. My first impressing is of subtle blackberry flavors with some tang around the edges of the tongue, Interesting mid-palate "spiciness" surprises me--suggestions of allspice, cinnamon or nutmeg, but only suggestions. Medium bodied--not, particularly, mouthfilling. Fairly short aftertaste that has more tongue acidic tang and tannin pucker than flavor.
