Thank you Dr. Frank! What a treat at lunch. Soft old Barolo nose. Dirt barnyard. Wow! You Gotta be kidding me on this 50-year-old! Talk about a gem. The fruit is still there. Sweet sour cherry absolutely dynamic continually changing quickly.

Enjoyed for 60 minutes. Then went south quickly. But great for that short window. From a winery that no longer exists.

No listing for Barbaresco .... so listed it here. A beautiful bottle, sound cork, great color, umami, soy, dark cherries for a winery that doesn’t exist anymore!

This looked dead - muddy and rusty...but totally different on the palate. Bright red currants, so amazing, and softened nicely the longer it was open...
