Drinking nicely but will be even better in 5-10 more years. Enjoyed with crab au gratin (rich enough to stand up next to this) and steak.

Vintage 1989 - #piemonte #nebbiolo Alive and kicking after 29 years. Earthy taste, minerals and kardemom in smell. A bit severe, will lose this with further cellaring

Nice bottle development. Austere. Very evolved. Little fruit remaining.

Light see-through brick color; large nose of freshly-opened bucket of paint spiced up with white flower petals and with the fruit -- ripe red cherries and black currants -- in the background; the taste is delicious, tannic, and long, but it lacks mid-palate punch. This wine obviously needs food, in this case robust semi-hard swiss and french cheeses worked well. Great value wine!

Quite beautiful after about 20 minutes of air. Nose of caramel, dead leaves, spearmint and tar. Palate follows with caramel, broth, roast meat, dead spearmint, licorice, cocoa, camphor and just a hint of red fruit. Surprising degree of dusty tannins and lifting acidity for its age. At first I felt it was past its prime but it really just kept getting better and better.
