Fifth Day In The Mountains - 1989 Barolo Vigna Farina, Giacomo Ascheri

More snow, more skiing & more Barolo!

1989 Barolo Vigna Farina, Giacomo Ascheri
A little bit on the murky side when opened but after one hour in a decanter, this 29 year old Barolo shows lovely signs of undergrowth, dried meat, overripe strawberries, dark incense and dry chocolate. A very fine dried up warmth. Really good.
The taste is mature, dry and warm with notes of dried strawberries, ceps, dry asphalt and forest floor. A fine dryness in the long finish. Has matured nicely and is fully mature but will surely keep for another 4-6 years (or at least I hope so since I have two more bottles...)
