A considerably older wine than the two Barolos (below), but the bouquet was much more muted when the cork was popped. Flavors were also a bit reticent, but with airing this wine really opened up.
Actually darker than the Guido Porro Barolo. Bouquet develops nicely over several hours--cherries, violets, leather. The flavors, thouigh, are glorious, even compared to the two Barolos on the table. The cherry component is brighter with more red tints--probably because of higher acidity. Dances on the palate. This wine is my favorite of the evening, and that is saying a lot.
