Opened this last weekend and served with a heavy spaghetti meat sauce. Good while eating the meat sauce but without not so good while not. The meat tamed the tannic bite. Later, I vacuum sealed it and reopened tonight. Last weekend, big dark heavy bitty tannins. It was too young and served well before its was ready. However tonight, smooth sour & tart cherries, hint of black licorice, menthol, graphite and black plum finish. Much better tonight. An 8.7 last week but not a fair test so young. Knew it would be much better tonight.

Fairly dark fruited with some tar and roses, so I guess quite classical Nebbiolo. None of those overly herby notes I found in the 08 Ovello which is good by me. I look fwd to continuing through the collectors case of 9 mixed crus.
