Enticingly fragrant...lovely aromas of woodland berry, violet, new leather, aromatic herb and a whiff of pipe tobacco. Firmly structured, the vibrant focused palate delivers juicy Marasca cherry, crushed strawberry, licorice and clove framed in taut, fine-grained tannins.
...there is tremendous depth to the fruit and plenty of character...red fruit-leaning profile and floral notes...
...very well integrated and smooth. The tannin management shows an excellent approach...offers increased focus on the ripe, round and plump fruit of the vintage.
Intense aroma of cloves, but also rose and earth notes...sophisticated, medium-to full-bodied Barbaresco...bold, dry tannins that are well integrated and a long, dry finish.
Sleek and linear, with cherry, strawberry, menthol and chalky, stony flavors fused to the muscular tannins. Finishes lean and dry, with a kernel of sweet fruit bound up in the structure.
Ripe, dark cherry that is a little ethereal but certainly complex. Full, ripe-fruit palate...certainly generous and mouth-filling. Long and tactile finish with bags of grainy tannins matching the rich fruit.
