Popped and poured; shared between four of us and therefore this really didn't get the time in the glass that this probably ought to have deserved. That being said, no reasonable amount of time would have helped considering how tight and unwilling this bottle seemed. After all, it is very young. However, the little that was on display was quite exciting. There is a powerful core of dark fruit and potentially the most obvious expression of roses I have yet encountered in a Barolo. Dark, zippy fruits on the palate but that's really about it right now. Long-ish finis. Structure for days. If I were going to open another bottle, I would probably allow myself several hours for contemplation. That being said, my remaining bottle won't be opened until well after 2020. This San Giuseppe should be really lovely stuff down the road.
