So good. Very surprised at how open this still is.

Initially a little thin on the palate. Given 30-40 minutes of air, the complexity really improved. Great nose of leather, dark fruits and a bit of anise. As the wine evolved, the flavor got meatier and more complex. Served with Mushroom and black truffle risotto and with roasted duck breast, egg pasta with white truffles, and Brussel sprouts with green grapes.

Mindblowing! This wine has entered its drinking window and is flat out stunning!

Started angular and tartly acidic. Following a 6hr double decant it was overtaken by a tobacco nose. Struck a nice balance but needs air badly

Dried cherry, licorice, menthol notes in a wine that comes across reticent and fleeting. Lacks depth of Produttori’s best wines.

Well, well, well. What a beauty. Somewhat closed on the nose but wonderfull floral and menthol start. The fruit was mouthfilling. Long finish, even after 2 minutes she was still there. I remember begging for a bottle at the PdB desk in Barbaresco when after 20 min he agreed on 6 bottles to be shared between me and my companion. Everytime I see him at the 2 yearly tasting of my local seller he laughs and tells me how lucky I was. Well, he was right!
