Busy month at work, at home, wife is pregnant so tasting notes become succinct!
95 Banfi Excelsus
Dark cherries with very lively fruit and color for a wine of this age. Off-putting, at least for me, is strong flavor of green peppers. Pervades whole palate. Seems I've encountered this before in older Banfi's. C.
96 Ceretto Asij Barbaresco
Day one, mouthful of mature, macerated cherries. Small amount bricking present. Added more depth and picked up smoked meats, slight plums and mushrooms on day two. B+.
