Classic, highly aromatic and racy Barbaresco. Really lovely and going to get a lot better.

With lasagna bolognese. A little tight, but all the form. One of the nicer, more classic '11's I've had

2011 vintage. What a winner! Fantastically beautiful nose. Highly intense. Violets, clove, balsamic, truffle, freesia and perfume. Luxardo cherry and hint of vanilla added on the palate. Dusty tannins and elevated acid. Lingering finish.

Pale ruby with garnet secondary hues. Nose has candied cherries, peat, smoke meat, leather, toast, nutmeg, and tobacco. Palate is balanced with medium acidity and tannins. Smooth and elegant finish. #barbaresco #vignesparse #cantinadelglicine #nebbiololife #nebbiolo#winesofitaly #piedmontwine

Love the his wine! Look for the little man on the label. Enjoyable on its own as a glass or with pasta, steak, pesto, chicken - really anything. So yummy. Will enjoy a glass while watching the Oscars. Nebbiolo grapes - good expression of the piedmont wines.
