The 2016 Barbaresco Cavanna is bold, punchy and full of character. I suppose technically, the Cavanna is a bit rustic, but there is just so much personality in the glass that I am willing to look past some of the more angular contours. Readers will find a deep, vibrant, old-school Barbaresco that offers a good bit of intensity as well as brawn. A burst of red berry fruit, iron, cedar, smoke and anise punctuates the substantial, super-expressive finish. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, October 2020)

Nose is average. Tar, roses, pretty balanced and serene. Juicy. Good fruit. Long. Not bad.
