Structured and loaded with finesse, this stunning red opens with scents of perfumed berry, rose petal, baking spice and a balsamic note. The focused palate delivers juicy black cherry, ground pepper, anise and tobacco alongside firm but refined tannins. It has great length, closing on a mineral note.
Blood orange, spice, wild flowers, mint and leather all open up in a striking, explosive Barbaresco endowed with real class.
...stern, almost monolithic style, whose bright acidity and beefy tannins are softened by sweet cherry and spice flavors...elements are there.
It shows the black and ripe fruit exuberance of the vintage, but it also holds back with extra firmness and structure. The bouquet is immediate, but this wine holds forward over time, thanks to the firm grip and tenacity it delivers to the palate.
Lifted, peppery raspberry and cherry nose with proper depth...fruit sweetness on the attack and concentrated, tangy fruit with lots of grainy tannins on the finish. Long and balanced and delicious.
