Tannins are young but nice round full mouthfeel.

I was simply mesmerized by this 2010 Pio Cesare Barolo (WWB, 94) which showed considerably better on the second day. While only an infant now, this displays wonderful red rose, red raspberry cordial, blood orange zest, and sweet tobacco with leather flavors. The weight and verve of this Barolo really entices, particularly once the tannins begin to settle. This great Pio Cesare will age gracefully for many decades. Drink 2019-2035- 94

Fun experiment alongside two 1968 Barolo’s. This 61 definitely has seen better days, some 20 years ago I’d say, but was still interesting with sautéed mushrooms, cigar ash and dried flowers.

Volume dialed up / menthol, dried fruit, depth, power / more drive

Best older Barolo I’ve ever had. Color was so light you didn’t even think it’s wine but one sniff and one sip and you’re transported to a rose garden.
