The Perfect Ones - Part 6

In 2004 I celebrated my 40th birthday with a couple of tastings, one of them were a tasting of thirty 1990 Barolos. It was a great tasting, most of them really shined, and there were only one corked bottle. But the really shining star of the two nights of tasting was the 1990 Cannubi Boschis från Sandrone.
The other wines at the tasting are listed below.

1990 Barolo Cannubi Boschis, Sandrone
A bottomless deep, sweet, complex nose with notes of sweet red  and black cherries, dry tobacco, dried mushrooms, forest floor, leather and some smoke. Soooooo utterly stunning on the nose - both intense and hedonistic at the same time. The sour and sweet cherries are to die for. Captivating!
The taste follow up the nose with the sweetest fruit imaginable, underlying sweet, polished tannins and a minute plus long finish. The structure is just awesome. Rosehips, cherries, tobacco, porcini, leather are just a few of the multitudes of impression that hits you. There is some mature notes, but this has just begun its evolvement. Breathtakingly beautiful!
