1964 Barolo, Schiavenza
This needed a couple of hours in two (!) decanters to really open up, and then revealing a deep, velvety nose with notes of dried figs, an autumn forest, fine tobacco and sun warm asphalt. A very fine dried up sweetness. Lovely.
The taste is equally velvety with notes of dried strawberries, gravel, rosehips, dry licorice and tobacco. Very much alive. Long and really fine.
I mailed with Walter - https://barolista.blogspot.com/2019/09/a-couple-of-days-in-piedmont-visits-to.html - regarding Giulio Garbi, who were a large negociant located in Alba, but obviously transparent enough to write on the label who the producer and bottler were.
1,75 liter of Barolo - a treat!
