Initially a bit monolithic, after an hour decant the nose was sour cherry kirsch and utterly intoxicating. From entry to its incredibly long finish, velvety smooth, feminine and lithe, loaded with shades of cherry, camphor, iodine and dark chocolate-laced espresso. Just enough lively tannins to keep it taut but without a discernible crease let alone a hard edge. This was possibly the finest Super-T and among the best wines I’ve ever tasted. — 23 days ago

Spoiler alert-I’m a ￼sucker For old school, rustic Italian wines. This clearly fits the bill. Theoretically a 2013 Barbara D’Asti should not be lasting this long but lord this definitely has legs at 14.5% alcohol.￼. Sage, damp leaves, old forest floor, fermented cherries: this is in my wheelhouse & for about 20$ let’s double down. Since it’s Barbera the tannins take a back seat but they are there. Polaner book. Paired with a Northern Bean/fennel/onion/garlic/ kale/ chicken stock stew on a growingly cold night on the Hudson. — a month ago
