Lifted aromas of rose water, savory mushroom, fresh and juicy raspberry and strawberry, prune, clove, stem, spearmint, and citrus oil the nose. Uber tart tomato, sour cherry, leather, tar, and mint on the palate. High acidity, long finish. Tight tannins.

16s are pretty. $40 for killer Barbaresco still remains one of the top values in the wine world. Love PdB.

The 2016 Barbaresco is a stunning wine with tremendous richness for this bottling. Ample, deep and powerful, the 2016 exudes pedigree and class from start to finish. I can't remember a straight Barbaresco here with this much fruit density and unctuous richness, and yet there is more than enough tannin and overall structure to give the wine its classically leaning feel. A blast of sweet red cherry fruit, tobacco, menthol licorice and smoke hits the potent finish. What a wine! (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, November 2019)

Red fruit and thin margin. Light garnet color. Highly tannic and medium high acid. Beautiful wine.

Infanticide... but delightful even at this stage. Medium body, the acidity keeps it light on its feet. Soft, graceful tannins ease the dark cherry/berry notes. Obviously the wine will age for years... but probably not when it drinks this well today. Represents amazing value.

Clearly was enjoying this too much to add my rating in a timely manner. First time having the 2016. Really an excellent wine. Approachable even at this age, and for the price this remains a crazy value even as it has appreciated in recent years. Very nice red fruit with great mouthfeel and an excellent finish.

This wine could definitely hang out for a few more years but is very drinkable now. Silky, well-integrated tannins with great acidity. Was perfect with some leftover beef stew we reheated!
