The 2009 Barbaresco opens up to classic Barbaresco color in the glass.
On the nose, there is the aromas of spices, pepper and black cherries.
The wine is powerful and firm while at the same time elegant and ethereal.
This wine pairs well with egg pastas, risottos, white meats, poultry, red meats, game, venison and aged cheese.
"Bright cherry, strawberry, floral, licorice and herbal aromas and flavors highlight this fragrant, elegant red. Silky and pure, with fine, ripe tannins for support. "
"The 2009 Barbaresco shows personality and good cheer with a good dose of dried fruit and savory spice. There are some elements that make the wine seem more aged than it really is. Cured meat and old leather emerge. But then the wine suddenly surprises you with an entourage of Nebbiolo-based tones like dried mint and licorice that tell you it still has loads of life within. "
The Wine Advocate
"Still in need of cellar aging, this shows aromas of toasted almond and vanilla backed by notes of dried fruit, honey and cassis. The mouthfeel is beautifully firm and solid."
