It's only wine but I like it

Textbook Barolo here from Brezza. Certainly some noted browning in the edges of the glass but no degredaation in the flavour. Indeed this is very much alive, seemingly at its peak. A ripe but traditional example, with red berry fruit, hints of tart cherries and a lingering finish. Tannin is still noted but seems to be mellowing. Super wine, most enjoyable.
Night 2, showed even better. Loved this. upgraded to 92 pts.
Tasted June 2016.
