This philosophy of long-term thinking is embodied by the Long Now Clock, a massive mechanical device designed to keep time for 10,000 years. Funded by Jeff Bezos' Bezos Expeditions, the first full-scale clock is being constructed inside a remote mountain in Texas accessible only on foot. The idea is that people will contemplate nature and time on their pilgrimage to visit the clock, which will ring a unique chime each time a visitor winds it without ever repeating itself.
"Pelissero's 2013 Long Now is rich, explosive and powerful, with all the pedigree of the Barbera coming through first. Nebbiolo tannins hit the mid-palate and finish, rounding things out nicely. Scents of black cherry jam, mocha, espresso and menthol add nuance throughout. The French oak needs time to settle down. Otherwise, this is a fine effort. The creamy, voluptuous finish is striking." – Antonio Galloni, 93 points
