Glorious aromas of flowers, crushed berries, strawberries and dried herbs. Some tea. Full-bodied and layered with a wonderfully curated, polished tannin structure and backbone.
...takes a little while to open fully, and it slowly releases forest berry, powdered licorice, toasted aniseed, spearmint, dried lavender and rosemary essence to build a lasting bouquet. The mouthfeel is streamlined and almost steely, with an extremely linear approach that adds to its length and persistency.
Fragrant and refined, this opens with heady scents of wild berry, rose petal, camphor and underbrush. Elegantly structured, the polished palate offers ripe Marasca cherry, blood orange and star anise framed in taut, fine-grained tannins.
...pretty, perfumed example of this cuvee...offers lots more red fruits as well as spice, dried flowers, incense, and loamy soil...hits the palate with medium-bodied richness, an elegant texture, plenty of firm tannins, and a great finish.
Sleek and dense, this red offers earthy, woodsy accents framing its cherry and berry essence. Tar and eucalyptus elements emerge and play out on the long finish.
...very pretty, gracious wine. Crushed red berries, dried flowers, mint and sweet spice all grace this decidedly airy, ethereal Barbaresco from the Gaja family.
Seductive nose of sweet cherry with a hint of oak and fruit cake. Supple palate with sappy cherry fruit and sandy tannins filling out the fruit.
