I bought this wine recently for $70 and took it to Las Vegas over the weekend. It was purchased upon release by Franco Fiorina and stored in his cellars in Alba until recently when a number of his wines were sold off. The bottle was still in the paper and the label, capsule and fill level were excellent. The cork was also in fine condition but a bit stubborn. We eventually got it out in 2 pieces. 1967 was an excellent vintage in Piedmont.
I took this bottle and a 1988 Marchesi di Barolo Grande Annate Barolo Riserva to dinner at an Italian restaurant with Pinot Envy, HighDesertWine and our spouses. What a contrast between these 2 Baroli.
I decanted this bottle about an hour before we drank it to get rid of the above average amount of sediment. It was a brownish orange color. No mistaking this wine for a recent vintage from the nose. Aromas of smoke, mushroom compost and barnyard. Very earthy and with notes of liver pate, strawberry and spices. The wine had a real mustiness to it and you could almost taste the mold from the cellar walls. A real experience. You must like this style of wine to enjoy it. Still medium bodied with a good length finish. I thought it held up very well the next day. 89-90 points.
