From a 3L bottle that I have cellared since release. I always hesitate to open these large format bottles, instead making excuses to hold them for longer since they tend to age at a glacial pace. However, we were hosting a large group of people for my 40th birthday dinner and since we were having lamb and rice, and big bottles are meant for big parties, and the world hasn’t been able to enjoy many big parties over the last 14 months, I figured WTFN. In an attempt to maximize the potential of the bottle, I pulled the cork almost 30 hours prior, a recommendation from by buddy Tim who tends to know a lot more about these things. I left the bottle in my cellar, allowing it to slow-ox. By dinner the following evening, this was absolutely singing. Gorgeous, translucent ruby color with a slight brownish rim. Ripe red fruits just ever so slightly stewed, red flowers, dry earth, and dried Mediterranean herbs. This bottle was positively bursting with energy! Bone dry. Medium+ tannin; medium+ acid. The finish was long and somewhat saline and was an absolutely sublime pairing with our Khaleeji fare. A fabulous bottle and a much better showing than the 2013 (standard format) that I recall drinking a few years back.

This is perfect tonight. 2013 Barbaresco is so pretty right now and it being night 2 on this bottle it is even better. I really love this wine in this vintage.

Just as nice as the 2012. Medium body, good structure.

Last nights comparison. Both were very much cherry driven fruit, but more acidic sour cherry in the 2013 at first while an almost cough drop deep cherry in the 2014. I found the 2013 had a more earthy nature while the 2014 seemed more rounded and had more deep fruit.

Licorice. Pepper. A few years now mellowed the tannins while not diminishing the fruit. Mass produced 24k cases. Who cares.

Three years since the last bottle from this case. Very little flowers or fruit on the nose today, mostly cedar and cigar box and spice. Good structure, lots of tar and earth, sour cherry. Hint of mint on the end. Anything from the P del B is always great.

Can’t think of a better wine to have with risotto and white truffles. Light and quaffable, but still with the necessary tannic leathery edge to parry with the creamy earthy food. In heaven!
