“The 2016 Barbaresco is a knock-out. And it is, for lack of a better word, the entry-level wine in this range. Freshly cut flowers, mint, cinnamon, red berry fruit and orange zest are some of the notes that lift from a Barbaresco that is all class. There is plenty of structure, but the purity of the fruit is so striking that the tannins are not especially noticeable. The 2016 is a stunning wine, that’s all there is to it.”

“Plump and permeated by rose, cherry, raspberry, iron, tar and tobacco flavors, this red has power and intensity. Assertive tannins emerge on the finish, yet this has plenty in reserve. Shows a fine purity and harmony. Best from 2024 through 2042. 1050 cases made, 500 cases imported.”

“Iris, menthol, cranberry and exotic spice aromas take center stage. Elegant and focused, the fresh, polished palate doles our pomegranate, red cherry, licorice and baking spice while sleek, fine-grained tannins offer lithe support. Drink through 2031."
