To be released in September, the 2014 Barbaresco is a beautiful wine that encompasses the important qualities that we look for in fine Nebbiolo. Ultimately, this is the kind of vintage that transfers best to the delicate grape. It saw a long growing season (Nebbiolo loves a late harvest) and steep diurnal temperature shifts to lock in the freshness of aromas. The mouthfeel is a bit thinner in texture, but it delivers plenty of beautiful length and endurance instead. It offers crisp tones of cherry fruit with licorice, wet earth and blue flowers. Drink now through 2030. (ML)
The 2014 Barbaresco is fabulous. Lifted in the glass, with striking perfume and captivating translucency, the Produttori's Barbaresco captures all the elements that make this vintage so compelling. Today, the 2014 is very, very young. What stands out most is its textural finesse and balance. It will be a number of years before the aromas and flavors are fully expressive. The only thing that might come as a surprise is the touch of new cask in this wine. Otherwise, the 2014 is one of the finest editions of the straight Barbaresco I can remember tasting, not to mention a superb example of how magnificent this vintage is in Barbaresco. Don't miss it. Drink from 2022 through 2042. (AG)
Rose petal and strawberry aromas follow through to a full body, chewy tannins and a fresh finish. Tar. Flavorful finish. Very well-done for the vintage. Drink or hold.
Classic varietal aromas of young Nebbiolo include woodland berry, freshly picked violet and a whiff of tilled soil fill the glass. The fresh, elegant palate delivers red cherry, strawberry, star anise and a hint of graphite set against vibrant acidity and polished tannins. Drink through 2024. *Editors' Choice* (KO)
Fragrant, with cherry, strawberry and rose notes, this elegant red offers flavors of berry fruit, licorice and underbrush, ending with a firm grip of tannins and chewy licorice and spice accents. Best from 2019 through 2032. (BS)
