1990 Barbaresco, Carlo Quazzolo

Winding down from work midweek, I opened this Nebbiolo.

1990 Barbaresco, Carlo Quazzolo
It needs a good hour to open up, but when it does it shows a fine mature nose with notes of rosehips, dried strawberries, mushrooms and a nice perfumed scent. A hint of dog fur adds to the complexity. Very, very good.
The taste is mature, firm and dry with notes of dried red currants, raspberry liquorice, tar and autumn leaves. A long, dry finish with some Christas spices present. Maybe a tad dry at the end. Worked great with a simple pasta dish.
