Produttori del Barbaresco, Barbaresco DOCG 2012, Piedmont Italy
Tasting Note: Pale-intensity garnet in color, this wine has a nose of red cherry fruit.
On the palate the dry nebbiolo displays tart red cherry supported by high tannin and high acidity.
Plush fruit underpins ripe, grippy tannin along with flavors of black-tea leaf.
Bottle Note: Made entirely from nebbiolo grapes, Barbaresco is a wine of great complexity and elegance that is well suited for long aging. Aromas of blackberry and violet combine with spicy notes to create its distinct taste, supported by firm tannins and a long finish.
