Wine Window For Drinking

Hi all,
I have been drinking some nebbiolo that has is very fruit forward with a weak finish. The same wine I featured in another post on blending. Now here is the question. When I first open a bottle, I let it breath, then pour a glass. The first half of the glass is pretty drinkable but the second half is really blah, a mellow red, and I will blend in 25% of a more tannic wine. On the second night after 24hr rest, the whole glass is pretty drinkable. After that they are all improvingly drinkable. I'm thinking it is past it's prime and I should drink it now. Breathing and resting seems to bring it into balance. Should it age longer or just be consumed now? After all, the last half of the bottle goes down pretty easy.
