Structured, weighty, and driven by red fruit, licorice, tar, and some light tobacco. Still showing pretty young

Tobacco, stinky red fruit, tar, black cherry. Pure and lean and muscular. There’s a purity to this on the palate- a real intense yet lifted red fruit influenced/ leather fruit. There’s a whiff of mint on the finish. Very good.

Darker and plummy in color. Rounded and good fruit. Gnarly stuff, dried rose and sour cherry. Balanced. Slightly drying at the edges.

My own Barolo vs. Brunello,2013, half bottle, same price, challenge:
the Barolo was ethereal... light but fragrant. Roses. Olives. Drinking beautifully now but of course it should go longer. The brunello was cherry, earthy, medium tannins, tighter... but also showing well at an early age. I'm buying another of the Barolo.

This is quite impenetrable. Dark fruit/ on the nose brooding, almost inky blue fruit. Underneath blackcurrant, slate, black pepper, tarriness. Then in the palate pure, pure dark fruit and lean minerality. An exceptionally well preserved bottle, but a long time ahead. Great balance.

1990. This wine is brilliant and the fruit is peaking. Do not wait to drink
