Review

Clear, brightening ruby garnet. Fragrant, finely marked nose, of raspberry, rose petals and ripe cherries, inviting. Polished, finely meshed tannin characterizes the wine on the palate, like a fine robe, salty, lots of ripe cherry, long finish.

Barbaresco pairs exceptionally well with classic Italian dishes like truffle risotto or grilled lamb chops, as its complex flavors and refined tannins complement rich and savory flavors.

Tasting Profile

Nose
On the nose, it is intense and aromatic, with a bouquet of dark fruit, such as black cherry and blackberry, mixed with floral and herbal notes, such as violet and rosemary.
Palate
On the palate, the wine is full-bodied and well-structured, with a firm tannic grip and a lively acidity that balances the wine's richness. The flavours are layered and concentrated, featuring dark fruit, such as blackcurrant and plum, mixed with hints of spices, such as black pepper and cinnamon, and a touch of vanilla.
