WTN: 1989 Pio Cesare Barolo


Recommended Posts

This was served with filet mignon and green peppercorn cognac cream sauce.

Did not decant. Allowed to breathe in the bottle for 45 minutes before drinking. Light-ruby to orange rim. Delicious nose of tar, rose petals, pencil lead, black cherry, lavender, new leather, and blackcurrant. Full-bodied, chewy wine with notes of black fruit, spice, earth, black cherry. Chewy like a Nebbiolo should be, not chewy like Shiraz. Wonderful 45+ second finish. This wine is at its peak. Drink up over the next year or two. 92 points.
