This is still really dense and packed. Great gnarly intense fruit. There’s a lifted cherry play doh note on the edges but the primary thing is iodine and lean focused fruit. There’s leather and gamey plummy stuff. Soured and distilled. Great purity and a tarry, luscious focus. Still decades ahead but this is serious, quite austere fruit. Wow

Still tight. Earthy. Lacking complexity. Needs massive air time and didn't open or become complex

Dark fruit, earth but not over powering. Velvety and smooth. Currants and spices. Lasting finish. 1990 giacosa barbaresco riserva

Enjoyed this on my birthday, At Kahill’s, Delta Hotel, on 21 May 2018. Excellent with food; salad, dates, calamari, New York Strip, Filet, and Blueberry Cheesecake. Tanic, but good. Light fruit nose and mouth. Could still age a few more years.
