Wow. This was my first 20-year old Barolo and it was fantastic. I need to find some more of these!
The nose was earthy with red fruit. Cherries exploded on the palate with ultra smooth tannins, settling into bright red fruit. The finish was long and lingering with very, very mellowed oak, a mild hint.
Undici, a local restaurant, had it on their seasonal list, which often moves older vintages. It may turn in the next few years, but was drinking superbly tonight.
So…I only need another 14 years for the 06 Barolos I am holding……
