Not bad for a budget Barbaresco. Dark pour. Nose of rose petal and a hint of iodine and Italian herbs with dark dusty red fruits. Entry of this wine is a bit more acidic than I thought it would be. Black cherry, hint of cola, hint of anise. Middle is more terroir-driven. Finishes with black cherry fruit, green olive, tobacco leaf, black tea, truffle. Round character but honestly quite a bit of stiff oak tannin still present that dried the tongue. Impressed. I was honestly expecting this wine to be much lighter, more raspberry and cherry notes. At the price paid, this is honestly quite a steal. You can hold this, but I don't think anymore time in bottle is going to help all that much.
