Some aged Barolo. Less fruit as expected. Tar, tobacco, leather, strawberry, raspberry. Buon!

60+ yr old vines estate in Bussia, growing in sandy clay, southward facing, 3800 plants per hectare, fermented in large botti, wood aged 60% botti, 40% barrique. Texture vastly detailed, continuously improving.

Started off quite shy. Still opening, in decanter, 2hrs later. Not crazy about the tinge of brett. Still, it has a bad case of blah. Stay tuned.
