    January 13, 2018 - Decanted for ~8 hours and consumed over the next 3-4 hours. Uber-classic aromas of dried cherry fruit, licorice, balsamico, dried flowers and old leather. Fruit on the palate is lighter and the overall impression is a fully mature Barbaresco. Still has some fine, grippy tannin that work well, particularly with food. Even though the weight and concentration are on the lighter side, there is good intensity of flavor. Quite nice. Should hold, but no reason to wait.

    November 27, 2015 - Very satisfying classic barbaresco! Earth and floral notes on the nose, along with some tar. Palate is leathery, acidic, with dark cherries, and still some pretty significant tannins giving a bite at the finish. Still lively, though I suspect this is around its peak, so drink up if you have any.

    August 27, 2015 - A remarkable bottle. The nose is full of fresh cut greens and grass with an underlayment of a dark leathery note. Not like a usual barbaresco. The palate is a combo of dark nebbiolo fruit and bright juicy fruit. While there is a an entire undercurrent of classic dark nebbiolo, earthy, tobacco, there is also this series of bright notes that are on top. Most unusual and delicious.

    September 14, 2013 - Still vigorous and worth the experience. I used half of the bottle in "Brasato al Barolo" and enjoyed the other half. Tonight we pour the Scavino Bric del Fiasc with dinner.
