    October 26, 2021 - "Baby Masseto" and a Night of Nebbiolo through the Decades (Charlotte, NC): A truly amazing wine. Opened 7 hours in advance, decanted for one hour before back into the bottle. This wine was so powerful a couple more hours of air would likely have taken this wine to even further heights. Beautiful color -- slight bricking with a ruby and orange hue. Aromatic nose of soft raisins and plums. Rich, textured wine on the palate reveals a perfect balance between primary notes of red cherry fruit and earthy compote, and secondary notes of gentle cedar and soft spice. Long, fabulous finish. A wine you could savor and drink for hours on end and hope it never finishes. This bottle was comparatively youthful -- could easily have been mistaken for a 15-20 year old Barolo -- and could be expected to drink well easily over the next 10-15 years. I’ve never had a better Barolo. Four votes for “Wine of the Night.”
