This was my first kit!! I bottled towards the end of December, so I have not tasted it yet. I did bottle about six half bottles so I could taste at the 3 month, 6 month, and 9 month out. I have tasted this kit (friends) and it was outstanding!! Once again, I would give it a year in the bottle!!
It was my third kit, and has now been aging for about seven months. It has a lighter body than I expected, and doesn't really taste like a Barbaresco to me, but will probably be a pretty good house wine. I don't hold out hopes for anything extraordinary.
