After 5 hours in the decanter this is an exciting vintage to experience. It has classic notes of black mission figs mixed with hints of tobacco and tar. Slight hints of vanilla still lingers. A nearly perfect Nebbiolo in my opinion. It is just awesome what this grape does with age. Slowly developing exactly what I’m looking for. The tannins are still around where it has potential for more time in the cellar. I really loved this wine and it’s now near the top of my Nebbiolo list

I’m really digging these older barbaresco’s. Tannins have washed away away and you have this beautiful dark fruit, licorice and a touch of floral. Just so smooth and hits every part of the palate. My wife again was outpacing me on this- she’s no dummy!
