    December 31, 2020 - Ruby with watery rim. Aromatically reticent, but fairly smooth with some fruit in the mouth. Moderate length. Absolutely disappointing, but very much in line with the extremely variable showing of the Crus from this producer: From excellent to highly disappointing. Are the corks they are, or have been, using up to it?

    November 15, 2020 - Persistent fruit and length. High-toned, floral notes - violets and rose. Black and red fruits. Upon opening, there was very noticeable tannins and so I decided to drink this over 4 days. By the 4th, the tannins had receded somewhat but the structure seems to suggest that this can age for minimally a couple more decades. Drink 2030-2040.

    October 21, 2020 - Brick color. Nose restrained, perhaps slightly seaweedy. Right out of the bottle, mostly acidic on the tongue. Perhaps it needs to warm up? After about an hour in the decanter, it started to open up a bit. Elegant with a sense of balance, yet I found it somewhat hard to pin down, perhaps due to my inexperience with "teenage" Barbaresco. Nonetheless a nice pairing with pasta with parmesian and truffles.

    June 28, 2020 - The 2004 Produttori Riservas: Asili wins by a nose (Magnum Society, Wellington, New Zealand): Served single blind, I had this wine as likely the Rabajà, rather than the Asili. Fairly deep, primary ruby colour. Musky, spicy plums, raspberries and red cherries on the nose. Intensely red fruited. On palate, plenty of gorgeous, bright, ripe red and black berry fruit, more than for the Asili, beside it. Touches of savoury evolution. Notes of black truffles, balsamic vinegar and dry herbs. However, drinking younger and less evolved than the Asili. More concentration, structure and power than the Asili. Approachable now but it will, I expect, reward additional cellar time (say 3-5 years). My WoTN but the group preferred the Asili.
