Traditional old world style and does it well, but it lacks a second gear.

Still very powerful, tar and iron-laced red fruit. Very classic but somewhat foursquare, missing just a bit of flair.

Excellent Barolo with 17 years. Nice nose of leather, smoke and dark fruits. Opened for about two hours. Good mouthfeel with a little bit of grit. Earth, mushroom and, toward the end of the bottle, anis. Served with rabbit stew with mushrooms and root vegetables, and pasta. The last bits enjoyed with creme caramel for dessert.

Like what you think a good Amaro should taste, but actually is.
