Tasting Notes

Utterly delicious and hedonistic. Juicy, rich yet savoury fruit. Spice, smoke and floral lift. Wonderful texture, silky and suave offset by bitter cherry and fresh acidity. This is a spellbinding wine which evokes the earthy complexity of this unique terroir in a delightfully drinkable style. Barbagalli 2011 manages to be at once serious, complex and meaningful and joyful. Enchanting.

Reviews & Scores

A delicate, fruity red with the texture of a fine Burgundy. Medium to light body, super-integrated tannins and a fresh finish. Shows a solid core of dense fruit and tannins but remains refined. Chocolate, spice, nut and berry character. From 80 to 100-year-old ungrafted vines. Better in 2016.

TASTING NOTES

Intense aromas of blackberries and black cherries with a note of chocolate and spice. Velvety smooth on the palate with rich black fruit flavours, some notes of coffee and a touch of black pepper. Good chewy tannins to balance and lingering black fruit flavours on the finish.

An extremely elegant wine with an intense bouquet of dark cassis and plums with a rich, smooth palate of juicy, ripe blackberry and plum flavours balanced by velvety tannins and a refreshing finish. This wine is delicious now and will age well for a further decade. Drink 2015 – 2024.
