Wine Advocate 91 points - The 2006 Barbaresco is simply beautiful. Sweet perfumed cherries, flowers and spices emerge from this mid-weight, firm Barbaresco. The wine offers exceptional elegance and class, with delicate Pinot-like notes that linger on the finish. Today the tannins come across as decidedly youthful, so a few years of cellaring seems wise. This is an exceptional 2006 Barbaresco. The Barbaresco is made from parcels in Ovello, Albesani and Starderi. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2021. ” (Oct 2009)
100% Nebbiolo grapes grown in the hills above Barbaresco. Delicate perfume with aromas of dark cherry and black pepper with a hint of tobacco from a fine cigar.
Elegant and fully ripe with intense fruit and wonderful structure and balance. Aged two years in oak and one year in the bottle, this wine will age well for many years.
