Giuseppe Cortese Langhe Nebbiolo 2003

Member Review by Eric Guido:

Medium red ruby in the glass with aromas of Plum, anise and with a underlying layer of musky, forest floor. On the palate, sour cherries, prune and hint of citrus. Very fresh at first that turns to an earthy, minerally finish which comes off as a little drying with rough tannin. I'm assuming that the initial richness of this Barbaresco followed by the let down of a finish is the result of the hot vintage. Although I don't see myself drinking this five years down the road, it still makes for an enjoyable glass of wine today, accompanied by a plate of pasta with red sauce.

I was tasted Y2000 2 days ago, it was nice tennis, cocas, coffee, violents, spicies flavors after 40mins opened. My families was loved this kind of wine which provides it's unique color (like old wine......) 10 years aged. It was still richful in flavor with black berry etc and easy to drink. I should also test it's reserva later.....
