Popped and poured. Like the Roccalini, this initially poured a bright ruby red which became a darker, almost garnet color with about 15 minutes of air. The 2014 Sori Paitin was distinctive with tar, roses, crushed rocks and, with a couple of hours in the glass, a bit of brown butter which was really interesting. However, around hour three, the finish became watery and thin...similar to what happened to the 2014 Roccalini but more so. I suspect this will be a recurring theme for the 2014 vintage in Barbaresco so my advice would be to drink these on the pop and pour and within the time-frame of a typical meal (a couple hours or so). Drink now or before 2022.

Beef juices, star anise and cigar tobacco. Limpid color, great structure and open enough to enjoy now. Brilliant!
