1999 Scavino, Barolo Riserva, Rocche del Annunziata (RT94) SO’ed early in the day, it was double decanted early in the day, then allowed to breath for the duration prior to the drive to my place. Deep ruby with a russet tinge, it reveals a soft overall character with an initially strange, slightly bitter note on the finish. With time in the glass it blossoms showing a cool herbaceous note, with hints of dark chocolate and a decided minerality. This kept opening and developing over the course of the evening, when revisited later in the night it was truly magnificent. Drink 2019-2039+
