  • Drinking well now - good to go PnP. No rush, air does the wine good. Classic in style. Great - mirrors my previous notes on the wine, however slightly more mature.

  • God ved åbning og dejlig 1-2 timer efter dekantering.

  • Ongoing discussion of the 04 Barolo's are maturing faster than expected. This one is not! Absolutely better on day two, and on the first day it needs a few hours to open up, and the fruit quality really improves, becomes more complex and the wine gains more balance. Very traditional in its expression. Great Barolo, and based on the price a great buy compared to others! No rush at all still, ideally wait a few more years - but 3-4 hours on a decanter does nothing but good to the wine. Good length.

  • Needs a couple of hours to open up fully, with beautiful old-school aromatics such as mint and camphor, leather and earth, raspberry coulis, salty liquorice and oriental spice. The taste has excellent build and balance, with serious concentration and tannins rounded by age. Nice minty sensations follow on the finish, which also offers spicy warmth, without being hot. Ready to go after proper aeration, with many years left.

  • Needed an hour or rather two in the decanter to really get going. Complex nose with oriental spice, earth, tobacco, leather, and more. Fairly dark old-school cherry fruit, rippled with sweet raspberries. Beautiful tannin structure, studded with spicy, gritty minerality. Long, lovely, rewarding finish. Stylewise, Fenocchio's '04 Bussia Riserva is as true to terroir as can be. It's still early days, and it should develop well for another fifteen years at least.
