Gorgeous Barolo, needs more time for tannins to calm down, but otherwise stunning.

Nice, ripe, modern delicious Barolo. Dang. This one has me leaning from the traditional. This wine is ready from cork pop, but was much better after 2 hrs of bottle decanting and probably has another 7 years left. Nose of herbs, soil, mushroom, cola, funeral flowers. Entry of flowers, raspberry cola, nice acidity and just a hair departed from full bodied. Complex. Beautiful wine. Finishes with some astringency and youthful oak tannin so this one has a while left. Tobacco, herb, soil. Dang. If you have these, now is the time.

Very tender after opening, picks up some tannins after 1.5 hour decant. Seems more like Barbaresco, i.e. on feminine side

Opens with a sour cherry and finishes with rich tannins. Excellent pairing for rich pastas and game meats.
