When first opened this was very primary but with air it turned into a beautiful barbaresco. Very terroir driven. Medium body with bright acidity. If you’re not on the balancedwineselection.com mailing list, I would get on it.

Drank 3/21/20. Excellent with penne with sausage, mustard, and cream sauce.
I had originally had this wine from Magnum around 3 months ago, via Coravin. For whatever reason, it does seem to have improved a bit.
Scents of are now more reminiscent of nebbiolo, with characteristic rose petal and tar, accompanied by red cherry and a bit of petrol. Red cherry, earth, and spice are accompanied by leather notes and medium, well integrated tannins.

We finished this off tonight as well. What began as a young bruiser full of firm tannins eventually opened into a beautifully finessed picture of elegance. Exotic spice & floral aromatics surround the fresh cherry notes here. Ethereal palate weight balanced the power here. Very nice. — 16 hours ago
Initial nose of vitamins & iron. Intense strawberries on the palate with follow through of iron and minerals. Tannins not aggressive and wine is primary but open. Really enjoying the wine. — 7 days ago

Old Nebbiolo nose with sour cherry on palate for first two hours, then rose and red fruit for next hour, then as it was just hitting its stride it was gone - we finished it. Next time need to be more patient, if I’m lucky enough for a next time. Purchased from Walker Wines who has great old Nebbiolo offerings. — 8 days ago
