Perfect pizza wine four hours decanted. Vicolo Corn Meal Goat Cheese Pizza with our fresh ingredients.

The body is round, rich & lush. The structure, tension, balance & finish still need 3-5 years plus years to truly shine. Slightly sweet & sour & floral, dark cherries, ripe blueberries, dark plum, black raspberries, dark, slightly, sweet tarriness, anise, lead pencil, dry stone, dry clay, dark spice, limestone, crushed, dry rocks, nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, vanillin, fresh & dry tobacco, dry twigs, tree sap, dry herbs, savory meats, touch of pepper with candied & withering; dark, red, purple & some blue flowers framed in lavender & violets. Very good cool stream river acidity. The finish is still youthful (even decanted 4 plus hours) well balanced fruit & earth, ripe, juicy, elegant & it persists endlessly.

Even better in 3-5 years.

Produttori at the time we were there in the fall of 2015 was the 3rd largest European Co-op. It is located at the top of the town of Barbaresco, right under the church. We tasted there before going into Gaja down the street. Then, onto one of the best Michelin starred restaurants that is adjacent to Gaja we’ve had. 70 Euros lunch for two. The food was outstanding & rarely had that level of service.

Popped and poured; consumed over three hours. On the outset, this was bursting with raspberries on the nose. After about an hour, this gained some weight and the fruit shifted to crushed blackberries, pomegranate, and tar. On the palate, it was much the same with good acid and a nice salinity on the finish...which was really long BTW. This is a really good showing and I’ll likely buy more.

Hmmm. I have to admit I liked the 2014 much better. This seemed a little on the light/thin side to me. It was better on day 2 with bacon pizza. SM

unexpectedly bright- in the best way possible. as it opens tar and macerated black berries come thru. I haven't had in a few years and I still enjoy this. Great red for fatty fish. Upped my rating on day 2. delicious

Although lighter than the 2008 crus drank alongside, this is still darker than other vintages. Not as floral on the nose as other vintages and maybe less delineated overall. Not bad, but I’ll try next bottle in a few years to give it time to be more expressive.

Dirty cherry, cranberry, strawberry undertones. Laser focused but not sharp or harsh, really pretty and loads of life left
