1993 Dolcetto d’Alba Borgo Asili, Lodali
Opens up a tad funky but only with a little time in the glass, this 27 year old Dolcetto offers up fine notes of dried black cherries, chocolate biscuits, leather and rosehip on the nose. Very, very good. Still alive and kicking.
The taste is dry and mature with a fine warmth and notes of dry licorice, dried up cherry jam, earth and leather. The tannins still gives a tiny amount of resistence. This is good! Bottles like this (and I have more!) will easily go on for 8+ years.
