Young but such a benchmark for the region. Sappy red and black fruit, bramble, and lithe tar notes. You want this in a blind lineup of what barbaresco “should” be.

Oh my god. Red wine with oomph, how I have missed thee. My 31 year old taste buds thank thee for your powerful musk.

Italian wines smell like my grandfather. He was a Don. Capital D and all. Dark, spiced perfume of hot cinnamon, blackberry compote, cherry pie, a tannery, and black pepper.

Tannins are welcome here. A muted acidity allows the purity of the fruit and the smokey warmth of the baking spices to glow.

A little too young, but so elegant. What you expect from a Barbaresco.

Grippy. Too young. But lots of potential, classic cherry, rose, tar. 2 hours or 2 years.
