    March 7, 2019 - Rose petal and strawberry on the nose. On the palate, dried cherry, strawberry, and roses with notes of blueberry and leather, with light tannins and good acidity on the medium finish. This bottle had significant sediment and needed decanting for that, but it didn't need air; it's in its drinking window, and it's likely to stay there for some years. This is a classic mid-weight Barbaresco, and it was an excellent value at about $40. More recent vintages are only slightly more expensive.

    February 4, 2018 - Opened, poured into a decanter, and enjoyed with food (spaghetti with tomato-pesto sauce, and a grilled rib-eye steak, in case you were wondering). followed for about 3 hours.
    Dark purple color. Nose of dark cherries, some tar and rose and some vanilla. A little cherry cough syrup as well.
    Big dark cherry flavor with a zippy acidity to it. Fruit is dense and the tannins and acidity are all present creating a rich, dynamic and enjoyable wine.
    This has the depth and acidity to age well for years.

    May 27, 2017 - Medium, light red. Intense nose first with boysenberry and pencil shavings. After a decant it turned towards purple flowers, red cherry, earth and a bit of oak in the back ground. The flavours were certainly more traditional leaning towards red cherry, and roasted meat. Long dry finish.

    I was happy that people went to Nebiollo right away so it must be a bit more traditional then I thought.

    December 10, 2016 - Slow O'd for 8 hours before enjoying. But honestly the taste that I had upon opening may have been better than after the 8 hours of prep. Initially quite perfumed and seemed open for business. At dinner, the wine was slightly more closed down - which I am starting to see if a current characteristic of the 2004 vintage in Barolo/Barbaresco. The wine still showed some very nice notes of strawberries, chocolate, and black licorice. The palate was smooth and polished. The new oak is well integrated and I am sure contributed to the smooth texture of the wine.
