Bruno Giacosa Barbaresco 1995

Bruno Giacosa Barbaresco 1995
A little cloudy at first and had plenty of sediment, the nebbiolo settled into a crystal clear medium garnet core with an orange-reddish meniscus. Beautiful aromas of dried mandarin peel, red berries and liquorice greeted the first whiff on the nose that slowly exhibited some cinnamon and chinese five spice. Somewhat earthy on the palate, which reminded me of dried shitake mushrooms, coffee grounds, and caramelized sugar (like those used in vietnamese cooking). A long and powerful finish with a substantial (and important) tannic grip. What a beauty!
