Popped and poured; consumed over two days. Dark cherries, tar, black tea and wet rocks. Tart black cherries and black berries. Plenty of structure to last. Came across just a touch hot on the second day.

This is drinking wonderfully. Balance and developed and surprisingly affordable. (Relatively.)

Firm & ripe fruit, elegant, spicy, slightly foresty Serralunga character.

Even the more modern style can't keep this from being a banker. Shayn, please pour one of these next week 😀

I really dislike most 2003 Barolo, but I wouldn't kick this one out of bed. Not getting any better though.
