Reply to "October 2014: What Are You Drinking?"

Last night:
2010 Nino Negri Valtellina Superiore Sassella Le Tense - Nebbiolo lite: very accessible now, with fresh cherry, hints of tea, slightly dusty tannins and lively acidity.

Tonight:
2010 Marchesi di Barolo Barbaresco - deeper flavours and a little more full bodied than the Lombardia Nebbiolo, with a nice balance of cherry and strawberry, rose petals, pekoe tea, and smooth tannins. Biggest detractor: it's a little low on acidity. Not sure about age-ability, but it's drinking well now.
