Decanting...Planning to pair this with Osso Buco tonight, so it's going to be a little more time until I get to notes on this bottle. (The veal shanks are the size of an outstretched hand...I can't wait!)

Nebbiolo how I love you in all your forms...

On the nose, over ripe strawberry, dried cherry, smokey chocolate (oh how I'd love to eat smokey chocolate!).

On the palate, very smooth after 5+ hours decant with tannin only on the end of the finish, smoked truffle, dried strawberry, loamy mineral.

Revisit in 5+ years on remaining stock. Expected life 8-12 years.

Perfect pairing with Osso Buco, after a 3+ hour braise the veal was spoon-able tender.

Nice Ruby color. Very fruity nose, mostly red fruit. Medium+ body with lots of white and black pepper. Medium finish. Pleasant.

The 2000 is right at its peak maturity now. Bold, sassy, still lots of life. 2 min finish.
