Black cherries, sun dried tomatoes, crushed roses, eucalyptus, dried thyme, cigar box, graphite, iron, balsámico. Sharp acid/rough velvet tannin balance, full bodied, juicy texture, peppery-earthy finish. Solid upon opening, evolved aromatically in glass. Classic Barolo.

Decant this for an hour and you're in for a treat. Big, spicy, delicious.

A little herbs on tho nose with little more prominent barnyard aromas and cherry. On the palette dark fruits - dark cherries. Quite well balanced with dry finish. Give it time to open.

Left it in the decanter over night. Got smoother, with more refined tannin an acidity, but slightly more gritty. This won't be a knock out in a 5 more years, but it'll be closer.
