Barolo On The Road - 1990 Barolo Riserva, E. Pira

This evening its time to open a bottle of mature Barolo. Visiting E Pira some 10 years ago was very interesting, since Chiara, at that time, was doing her malo in her living room...don´t ask...
And later on she was sabering a magnum of Champagne and opening a bottle of 1971 E. Pira we brought - it was a interesting visit indeed. :-)

1990 Barolo Riserva, E. Pira
The nose is deep, mature and hedonistic with notes of dried red berries, autumn leaves, dried mushrooms, tons of truffles and a touch of dog fur. Complex and interesting. , Deep and gorgeously sweet.
The taste is round, warm and mature with notes of dried cherries, moist earth, dried mushrooms, licorice and some leathery aromas. Long, warm and very fine. This is drinking perfect now.
