Montebuono Provincia di Pavia Red Blend 2018

Old style wine
I love the detailed description attached to the neck of the bottle telling you all about the site, the winemaking and how to deal with the wine

This is a Barbacarlo's brother, not minor though

It starts quite fruit orientated, but it does unfold over many hours in the decanter

At first you can mistake it for a robust sparkling shiraz(given that it has a fizz when opened).
Day 2 the blue mineral it's all over and it is smoother and more enjoyable too( the tannin is more digestible too)
Very long and to review again in many years

Ps after a battle in Marengo(Italy) Napoleon stopped by in the area and sipped on this delicious nectar; from there the vineyard hill is also called Napoleon's hill(as well as Montebuono hill).

Soft and balanced, just straight-up mature. Not herb-y, not spritzy, a unique barbacarlo and lovely. — 7 years ago

Nice, very Italian. Tasted like a blend of nebiolo and Sangiovese but didn't contain any of the grapes — 8 years ago

Barbacarlo Provincia di Pavia IGT 2009

Черешневый сок, черри-кола, ежевика, темные пионы, можжевельник, ароматные травы, шоколадная крошка. Полное, подвижное тело с сочной кислотностью и легким остаточным сахаром. В этот раз игристости почти нет. Собранно, концентрированно, одновременно густо и свежо, со структурой и потенциалом. — 6 years ago

Amazing organic wine made from a fantastic strange man (now he is over 80) who is following BIO principles since 70s. A masterpiece!

Barbacarlo Oltrepo Pavese Red Blend 1994

Черри-кола, сухая малина, клюква, ревень, темные пионы, можжевельник, прелая хвоя, жирная земля. Почти не ощутимая газация, сочное среднее тело с естественной кислотностью и интегрированными танинами. Свежо, полно, ещё первично, без явных возрастных признаков. Жовиально и ещё чуть первично, но при этом фактурно и глубоко, в отличной форме. — 6 years ago
