This is a magnificent expression of the vintage with its enveloping and complex bouquet of wild flowers and red cherries with a hint of dark chocolate, spices and wild herbs. The palate has a lovely richness with great depth of red berry fruit with gorgeously textured tannins, a refreshing acidity and a refined mineral note which runs through to the very long finish. Extremely appealing, even now, it will be all too tempting to drink this wine on release but it has the structure to age for fifteen years or more.
Reviews & Scores
Good bright medium red. Enticing, nuanced nose offers red berries, red cherry and spicy, earthy underbrush. Rich, broad and fine-grained, with lovely inner-mouth perfume and tension. Seemed to shut down in the glass, showing a penetrating juicy quality and finishing with suave tannins and terrific length. A splendid Barbaresco.
