Thought It was time to drink this one and it turns out I was wrong. 5 years ago would have been better. It’s losing some of its berry and floral pleasure to leather and dusty earth, with notes of raisins and dates. Not quite the elegance I had hoped for with dinner, but that’s the way it goes sometimes.

Perhaos something odd with this bottle a bit tinny along with anise and leather and cedar.

Good, but not fine barbaresco. Somewhat imbalanced and rustic.

Talk about acidity. Holy cow. Bright redcurrant leather and manure laced mud.

Great wine!!!!!!! The acidity was still so fresh and vibrant. Beautiful dried fruits and herbs.

I like Nebbiolo cause it's like Pinot. With a set if balls. Don't know producer but it's solid.
