Tart. Day 2 tart. Day 3 tart. Day 4 tart. It's just out of balance. Don't open for another 10 years and let me know but I'd guess it will still be tart. SS

Lost a lot in the last year. The nose is mature but vibrant with sweet fruit and nice complexity. The palate has dried out leaving powerful tannins and the evidence of once ripe fruit. #deforville #barbareso #docg #langhe #nebbiolo #ctbucklinwine

Fully mature but within the first hour of being decanted the complexity was raging. So beautiful and earthy. #barbaresco #deforville
