Proper Barbaresco from a great vintage. Right in the sweet spot: burnt sugar, quatre épices, roasted plums. The ultra-structure that all the great ‘10s have make this a likely candidate to drink well for another 10 years. Amazing that this is still in stores for $30 or less.

Well-made, smoky Barbaresco with some oak influence. Tech sheet indicates 2 years in oak, but not much detail on the size of the barrels. Violets, sour cherry, almond, baking spices, white mushroom, sage. Plenty of acid a tannins... this 2015 needs some time in bottle. SommSelect Fall 2018.

Classic floral nose. More candies strawberry/raspberry than tar, but still distinct gravel. Lithe, lucid, elegant on the palate. Rose, then ripe strawberry. Understated acid structure. Long, developing finish.

As always, a terrific old-school barbaresco at a fantastic price. And always a great indicator of vintage quality.

Hits the spot. Really beautiful, pure and bright red fruits that are perfectly ripe. High acid to match the fruit, some "leather" and a little EA. cherry fruit is starting to dry a touch. Stewed cherries. "Rusty". Alc not too high which is nice. Again, hits the nebb spot.
