Paired with London broil. Decent wine, slightly passed its prime but still had tannic structure to observe. Could have been decanted a bit earlier (opened after shift w/ late dinner). Opened up nicely after 45 mins.

Lovely, warm Nebbiolo. Medium bodied with delicate spice dancing on the palate.

Aromatic incense, black licorice, dried prune. Strong acidity, dark ruby color, medium mouthfeel.

I was lucky enough to try the 1959 vintage this weekend - by far the oldest wine I have ever tasted. We compared it with the 2012 and what a difference 59 years makes! The 1959 had the appearance of a peaty scotch and a taste far closer to port than to a modern wine. Delicious though, with old leather and cigar box aromas front and center.
