Eye: pale intensity. Garnet, brick colour. Nose: pronounced intensity, layered, not explosive. Primary: pepper, liquorice, plum, cherry, violet, black tea. Secondary: cedar, cloves. Tertiary: forest floor, mushroom, wet leaves. Dry. High acidity. High tannins. High alcohol. Full bodied. Pronounced flavours. Long finish. Conclusion: balanced, long finish, complex, intense. Outstanding.

Blood orange, dried cherry, smoke. Classic, very good, partly developed Barolo that could use a bit more time.

Excellent Barolo. Had it at my birthday dinner with Amel, Marco, Ms Horneman, Mr Rogers, Yafi, Skip. Paired it with bagna cauda and vegetables, uova al verde, roasted lamb with resemary, farro risotto, tuma cheese. Pio Cesare is an institution.

Fabulous nose. Elegant wine, but a bit past it’s prime. Lots of raspberry, cherries, and mushrooms with hints of vanilla. Very long finish.

Mmmm this was very good. Good fruit concentration with an aroma right down my alley - dry fruit, smokey, earthy, earl grey and a little nutmeg. Full body, high tannins and a long finish, of course, for a Nebb ;)
