    January 21, 2021 - Overall drinking well, despite having unresolved tannins.

    January 8, 2021 - Opened 15.00 and poured on carafe to breathe. Initial impression: no fruit left, just dry tannins. Obviously too old or damaged in some weird way (has lived in my wine fridge all through it’s life). In the drain?
    17.00: more accessible. Big glass, a couple of swings and it feels right. Still not a very nice wine. But clearly: Give it a chance.
    19.00: with food. We are getting there. Quite nice, mature barolo, tertiary but balanced with enough fruit and non-dominating tannins.
    21.00: wow. Textbook mature barolo. Forest floor, sour cherries, leather and meaty. Long aftertaste. Almost perfect.
    22.30: last sip. As 21.00. Perfect, mature barolo
    Morale: never give up on mature wine. Give it time to breathe.

    January 1, 2021 - Jury is out on this wine. May have held too long before opening...or decanted too long (2 hours).

    December 12, 2020 - This is outstanding. Opened about two hours before the party. The nose was ethereal with sweet cherry, strawberry leather and a little cinnamon. Pallet was light red fruit, cherry and some tar. Great mouthfeel and long finish. Still has some tannins but they are fine. Just a great wine in a really good place.

    December 8, 2019 - Black tea, dark berries, cherries and spice on the nose - beautifully layered. The palate shows still vivis acidity, smooth but present tannins, dark fruit/cherries, tea, herbs.
    Could take another 5-10 years in cellar but no need if you like a bit more fruit. Drink very well now.

    (Paolo Scavino Barolo Bric dël Fiasc, Castiglione Falletto) Dark purple-red; shiny and transparent. Bright, fresh black-plum aromas are backed by licorice and bitter chocolate with hints of asphalt and lilac. The palate offers super-ripe, concentrated black-cherry flavors with a refreshing touch of tree-bark astringency; it’s full bodied but soft and supple, with just enough acidity to keep it from seeming heavy. Pronounced green-grape tannins kick in midpalate and bring the wine to a nice, dry finish. Very solid, not flabby, but needs time for the tannins to soften. Postmodern Barolo: The War That Never Was
