Rabbit & Barbaresco

What to do with some leftover rabbit? Make a yummy pasta sauce and then open a mature Nebbiolo, of course!

1985 Barbaresco, Punset
A lovely mature nose that really opened up with some air, with notes of autumn leaves, tobacco, dried cherries, paint and a hint of truffle. Very, very good. A fine dried up sweetness.
The taste is mature, cool and velvety with notes of cranberries, earth, leather and rosehips. A fine, dry finish with a hint of still structured tannins. Very fine.
