Clear light red. Dinner at a nearby restaurant provided an unexpected opportunity to drink this wine. At first the nose is not promising, as aromas of old closet and Madeira dominate. On the palate, though, the wine is completely different, showing delicate notes of sweet perfumed fruit, cloves, cinnamon, and herbs with a slightly Chinato-like personality. I thought the wine would decline quickly once opened, but instead it appeared to become younger and younger with each passing moment. Totally quirky, unique and unlike any other Barolo I have encountered, tasting this wine from an impeccably stored bottle was an unforgettable experience.
