Winemaker's Notes

An opulent, full-bodied wine, packed with soft tannins that are already nicely evolved and silky. Very concentrated aromas with classic floral and red fruit highlights. This is a wine that fully expresses Nebbiolo's character, with a structure destined to guarantee a lengthy cellar life with constant evolvement.

Critical Acclaim

"Crushed flowers, spices and raspberries emerge as the 2005 Barbaresco Bernardot flows onto the palate. The Bernardot reveals an attractive dense core of dark red fruit, showing terrific energy and freshness. Today the wine comes across as rather firm, but it should develop into a beauty in a few years. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020. "
92 Points

"Deep ruby hue. Forest floor nose with hints of tobacco and cherry pit with a mineral accent. Crisp and slightly drying with appealing mineral, herbal and cedar aspects. Powerful tannins should mellow with another two years in the bottle."
