Hard to beat value for money for a Barbaresco
A few more years of storage would definitely improve it. Even if young this wine was gentle on the tanins side. I felt it has a lighter body than other Barbarescos and it seem like a wine which could be easily enjoyed without food. In fact the spaghetti with funghi-porcini over-shadowed the wine a bit, so next time I would try some meal with less flavor (than funghi-porcini)by: Martin (2 Mar) - Vintage 2017
Having had the pleasure of enjoying several vintages of this wine, the 2017 really is an outstanding example, and offers a lot of pleasure in its youth. Brimming with red fruit and quite full bodied, I bet it will mature into something more classical, but why wait?by: L5ncy (13/12/2016) - Vintage 2012
For the price range this is a good wine, I love my chianti's & Montlacino's so it's always hard to push them out of the way. It's a pleasant wine but doesn't quite have that special place in my heart, that being said it's good value and it won't be disappointedby: Rod (30/08/2017) - Vintage 2014
Very rich concentrated aromas but quite shy. Great evolution from delicateness to power and richness. Very beautiful floral of rose and leather. Some dried red fruits are well presented but very soft. Finish is long with Power of tannin and concentration.by: Wine explorer (08/01/2020) - Vintage 2016
Excellent structure and body
Excellent example from the producer combined with excellent vintage, full bodied with great complexity and tamed tannins. Grab while it lasts!
