The 2013 Barbaresco is deep, layered and inviting. I suppose the aromatics could use a bit more focus, but the purity of the fruit and overall texture make up for that to a large degree. Creamy, pliant and enveloping in all of its dimensions, the 2013 is an attention grabbing wine. Succulent dark cherry, wild flowers, sweet herbs and a hint of underbrush give the wine its super distinctive aromatic and flavor profile. (AG)
This opens with a nose of mature black-skinned fruit, leather, truffle, blue flower and cake spice. On the smooth palate, notes of cake spice and star anise back up ripe black cherry and raspberry compote. Firm, velvety tannins provide the framework. (KO)
A tightly wound red, with firm, raspy tannins that make the future difficult to predict. With air, sweet cherry, licorice and spice flavors emerge. Fans out nicely on the lingering finish. Best from 2019 through 2032. (BS, Web-2017)
