    August 8, 2020 - Immediately opened nose with wonderful warm spices and mature red fruits. On the palate, might have benefitted from 2-3 hours decanting. Fully developed but can still go for many more years. Great wine

    May 29, 2020 - Double decanted for 2 hours. A little hot and roasted in a way that is typical of 2003. Two hours later, the wine is starting to mellow and integrate. Delicious now.

    March 28, 2020 - Bruno Giacosa Asili Barbaresco 2003
    On the nose, damp earth, rose, candied fruit, cherries, licorice, cola, herbs, dried raisins. A mature Barbaresco.
    On the palate, red cherries, cranberries, sweet candied fruit, sweet dried raisins, elegant and light, sweet herbs, thyme and tar. Very elegant. Good for drinking now but don’t expect a blockbuster.

    February 22, 2020 - Was oxidized and probably had turned already.

    August 16, 2019 - Heat damaged or OTH. Very ripe / roasted flavors. Not right. Would have never called this a Giacosa in a blind tasting format.
