What a nose. Soaring spice and cherries. Cigar, mint, tobacco, menthol leaf, terrific aromas and the palate is a stunner with ample 2013 fruit and opulent but also brisk with terrific acids. Really structured and dense with already great complexity. This is a rock star. Stunning.

The wine of the night for the most people. Beat giacosa Ashli blind. Tasted blind. Nose mint. Palate early season and medium cherry fruit. Early season cherry Fresh. Grippy. Juicy. Spicy. Finish is grippy.

Lovely nose. Very floral. Cherry liquor. Palate is insane. Powerful cherries. Early season really potent cherries. Cherry spice. Cherry pit. Long spicy finish. People say that barbaresco is more feminine. If so this is Angelina Jolie. Not demure. Glad I have this bought from Fass selections. ... getting better as it opens. Really sweet cherry spice. Wow. Not the most complex at this point or this would be higher. ... getting a bit more complex on the nose as it aerates. ... really crazy juicy and alive. Finish has a hint of cherry licorice. Dried roses on the nose after 2 hours
