Seared stones, lingonberry jam, sandy soil, prosciutto skin. Very soft tannins and good acidity with nice intensity of flavors on the leathery end of the spectrum. Nice and broad in the mouth with really good depth of flavor. Intense cherry and almost plum fruit here with a deep bed of savory elements and mint on the finale. The wine finishes with a suggestion of warmth and spice. 90pts

Nebbiolo Prima - Barale Fratelli Castellero Barolo - nice red fruit, a bit candied, candied red apple, slightly dirty underlay, fresh in the mouth, well balanced nicely fruity with a simple open knit attack and then a bit more focus and depth on the backend, nicely ripe tannins, good solid if slightly rustic fruit persistence, nice length 8

We switched to older wines with this flight and this offered a pretty impressive package with it's rich nose full of earth, tea, veal stock, cold coffee, light fresh funghi note all turning very beefy and bloody with air and throwing in one stinky sock adding complexity. Fairly round and rich in the mouth with a block feel to the meaty, dark fruits. Still some lingering tannins that drive the savory, espresso crema finish. Not this most typical Nebbiolo but at peak and holding well. 2007-2017

The taste in in my opinion is nice like a modern Barolo should be. It is something that cannot be taken for a different wine. Nice and clean in the mouth.
