Ethereal nose. So earthy, tarry, cherry, potting soil, so many nuances like dead leaves, chestnut, mineral, so good. Palate is gorgeous and so deep. Wonderful fruit and terrific acidity and freshness. Long and so deep. Wow. This is so so good. Opulent mid palate with massive fruit soak and still structure to burn. Brilliant. What a wine.

Old Nebbiolo will make you cry. Either because it’s no good or because it’s so amazing it’s life changing. Fortunately tonight is category two. This has the texture of very good burgundy. Sweet sweet cherry fruit. A hint of spice. Nicely dense. Nose has cherry flowers and pine. Has at least another ten years ahead of it.

As this opens more dense cherry liquor. Crazy palate coat. Just a cherry Nuke bomb. Internal aromatics are sweet rose juice. Some rose on the nose.

Not a perfect bottle. A little rusty on the nose. Less so on the palate. Old Nebbiolo tasting. Earl Grey and dried dark fruits. A little shorter than one would expect.
