A special wine tonight. This 1996 Giacosa was in terrific shape from the first pour. We let it collect itself in a decanter for 3 hrs and drank it over a leisurely dinner in Vermont. It was soft, elegant, warm, and inviting. Couldn’t put it down. The fruit was dissipating but it’s secondary notes were so sexy. A great wine. — 9 days ago
