Another day - another bottle

Bruno Rocca Barbaresco Rabaja 2001 - cellared for about 3 years. Opened and immediately decanted (into my favorite wine decanter of all time - minus the questionable liquids pictured) and let it set for 1 hour, with great anticipation. Poured two glasses (not both were for me although it has happened before - I did share this time) and noticed the color showed no flaws, as expected. Aromas were very enticing, nice berry notes, with tobacco and cedar and the taste lived up to the press and aromas with cola, vanilla and fruit. Great and pleasing acidity made this pair nicely with Pizza Margherita with some fresh spinach leaves added, just because I wanted. 2 more bottles in the cellar - yay for me!
