Older bottle - gorgeous vertical - was able to detect steps of aging as we tasted back to 99. This was singing — 6 days ago
Layered smell with chocolate coming first then a light poke of alcohol. Very easy to drink, with only a hint of tannin, and refreshing aftertaste (2-3s) of mixed spices. Notes of cherry, blueberry (or maybe raspberry). Would be good to pair with light game (pigeon, rabbit) or heavier fish. — a month ago

Sottimano Curra Baebaresco 2015. Tawny and ruby coloration with some translucency. On the nose, rose, florals, dark cherry, anise, ripe plum, aged balsamic, chocolate and forest floor. On the palate, some red berries and cherry, but pretty strong and tight tannins. Will revisit after decanting a bit more. It’s been a little over 2 hours at this point. After another hour, cherry, anise, and a finish of same. Tannins are still very present. A bit too tight and acidic for my taste. $90 at B-21. — 4 days ago
