1990 Barbaresco Serraboella, Fratelli Cigliuti

After four days on the new work, I have to drink something nice to wind down (I should have waited to tomorrow but then its time for a major Boillot tasting - tough work!)

1990 Barbaresco Serraboella, Fratelli Cigliuti
This is just perfectly mature with loving notes of dried mushrooms, violets, soft red cherries and lots of red liquorice. Some fir wood scents. Really fine. Refined, with a medium firm backbone. Just gorgeous.
The taste is mature, tight and seedy with notes of dried cherries, rosehips, forest floor and some smoke. Even a hint of dried sweet strawberries. Long, dry and aristocratic. This is in a perfect drinking stage. Great wine.
