    March 11, 2018 - Tasting nicely but for a 1999 this still has life on it yet! Tart cherry, plum, star anise and white pepper.

    February 23, 2018 - Just a great barbera. See my notes from 2017, since this one is pretty much its twin.

    August 30, 2017 - Even a bit more delicious than my 2013 tasting. Nose is still big of dark cherries and cedar. The palate is chewy, tarry, smoky, but what cuts through it all is a good hit of acidity. Light tannins at end carry on for a while. Wonderful barbera. Still lively and younghish.

    October 23, 2013 - Huge nose redolent of tar and dark dark cherries, and cedar. Don't even need to put it to one's lips, because the nose is so delightful and dark, as some wines are of the Langhe. The palate has a forward sharpness of acidic fruit that really cuts the big nose. The taste is chewy, fruity, tarry, leathery, smoky and has a nice moderate hit of tannins at the end. This shows no sign of age -- bright, young, yet a certain maturity that must have come from its 14 years of life. The Trinchero really know how to handle barbera.

    August 19, 2013 - 14% abv. Still deep ruby, despite its age. Nose appears older, dried fruit, quite high-toned, coffee, sweet spice, meaty, fragrant and beautiful. Fine dusty tannins, high acidity, bit tart on finish, sour cherry. Very good. Very fresh still with fine texture and a beautiful nose. Acidity a bit volatile, especially on the palate.
