As always, the 2013 Barbaresco Cottà is a wine of amplitude and breadth. Sweet dark cherry, pomegranate, mint, spices and leather meld together effortlessly. The Cottà has a bit less delineation and nuance than some of the other wines in the range, but more immediacy and mid-palate juiciness. As the years have passed, so many wines in this lineup have improved, but the Cottà has remained pretty much static, for better or worse. (AG)
A tannic young wine with backbone and structure. Medium body, berry and walnut character and a chewy finish. Needs time to soften.
You'll find alluring scents of black-skinned berry, baking spice, violet, a hint of leather and a balsamic note on this well-structured red. The chewy palate shows dense black cherry, raspberry compote, licorice, clove and pipe tobacco alongside velvety tannins and fresh acidity. A hint of cinnamon closes the finish. It's already approachable but also has great mid-term aging potential. (KO)
This red yields barely a glimmer of cherry, licorice and tar for now, yet all the elements are in place for a medium-term evolution. Stiff, mouthcoating tannins patrol the finish. (BS)
