I had this open for 2+ hours, but it was still very acidic and astringent. I was hoping for it to mellow down and show more fruit. Still enjoyable, but on the harsh side.. Had it with scallops, bacon, peas and mint. Would be better with something heavier and fattier. — a month ago
Delicate, but feels a little flimsy. Missing some acidity. Seems lighter than 13% abv.
Update: I enjoyed this much more on the second day, so I bumped up my rating. More floral complexity and dry citrus came through. Also better not too cold - give it 30 minutes out of the fridge. — a month ago
I usually wait until later in the Fall to have Barolo, but I got ahead of myself! What a great one. On the brighter, juicier side. Red fruit forward with herbal earthiness and subdued tannins. Tasting great after 4 hours. Curious how the rest of the bottle will be tomorrow. — a month ago
