    This wine has a vibrant, ruby red hue, with super intense notes of Bing cherry, red licorice, exotic Asian spice and black tea. On the palate the wine is medium-bodied with medium tannins but no astringency. The streak of acidity pulls it all together into a seamless, utterly gorgeous wine. This could easily hold its own against Barbarescos twice its price. So practice that risotto recipe or score yourself some lamb shank and enjoy al fresco with loved ones.

    The nose of this wine is classic Langhe full of spice, smoke, anise and shows a plumy complexity. On the palate you can immediately see this wine has structure and depth, texturally the Barbaresco portion jumps right out at you, fine grain tannins with depth of flavor and the perfect acidic lift on the back end. The flavors echo the nose but add more subtle porcini and black tea flavors with hints of anise again and a long aftertaste. While not the second coming of Bruno Giacosa Barbaresco it is really a solid wine and for the price point an unbelievable deal.
