Castiglione Barolo Nebbiolo 1999

Opens up with sweet, balsamic smells, I thought it was oxidized. After a few minutes, the balsamic smells go away, the tannins dry my mouth and I feel hints of dry red cherries on the back of my mouth. The wine is opening get up now but the tannins Re still quite assertive.. this is weird. The wine changes quickly. The tannins are still there. This is not an easy wine to quaff. I should have had a big juicy steak with this 😞. Now I am smelling some oak hints (Slavonian???).
It is good... it has like 5 or 10 years of life on it. I would have liked to have another bottle then but I think that is the last one I have from 1999

Peaches. A little sweet even for a moscato, but the peaches are unmistakable. Single note wine but pleasant. — 11 days ago

Tre Vigne Barbera d'Asti 2016

Cherry blossoms on the nose. Really a more floral aroma than I was expecting. Easy and goes down smooth. Some hints of spice but lots of bright, red, ripe fruit. Cherry and some hints of strawberry. Nice work. — a month ago

Love aged Barbera from Asti. Vietti’s 2001 La Crena is deep, dense and explosive, with many years of fine drinking ahead.... — 6 days ago
