Incredible for a 36 year old wine. Fruity, tobacco with pleasant older tones. No more tanine, acids are smooth.

Wasn't singing like it did that day in Barolo. But still made for an elegant pair to a Christmas roast.

This 1982 is the perfect year to open this one. I was surprised but shouldn't when I realized it could have been kept for at least an other five years. It's classic .
