Oddero Barolo Nebbiolo 1967

This wasn't over the hill per se, but it wasn't enjoyable either. Too much VA for my liking. In fact, there's enough VA in my nose here to match the 95' Yquem we drank this 67' with. Somehow or other, two drinkers on the table preferred this over the stellar 64', but hey, to each their own. Having said that, I can certainly appreciate the structure of this wine. Distinctive balsamic core, with a long almost-umami finish, silky soft tannins, lace-like texture, and very bright acidity - more so than the 64', which is somewhat befitting of the vintage differences. I can only imagine how amazing a pristine bottle of this would be. Perhaps even better than the legendary 64'? This experience seems to corroborate the general consensus that 64' Baroli often outshines 67'. Even G, who ever so kindly opened these bottles, tends to agree based on his far more extensive experience. I also got to learn of the very elegant and traditional wines of Cantina Oddero from the 60s and 70s. Safe to say, I'm very keen to hunt down some bottles, provided they're at a good price.

Marty's birth year. Food wine to the max. Hoisin, pepper, balance.

Mint and tamari/umami, basil leaf. Brightly fresh, great zing of acidity. Beautifully integrated, well groomed and all together. What a wine.

A really special wine that I've had the opportunity to try three separate bottles of. Soy beef fruit leather if there was such a thing

@andrewSPates #naturalwinestudy #2amBaroloStudy: not a perfect bottle; a little like cooked soy sauce-- but still remarkable.
