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.
