I adore Cigliuti's Barbaresco over a few vintages and bottles. Although this one is aromatically thrilling there's this one weird move on the backend of the flavor profile that turns bitter when I wish it would show just a bit more vibrant fruit.
Decanted two hours prior to drinking. Lovely, concentrated Nebbiolo aromas - young and dominated by fruit and flowers: Dark cherry, roses, violets. After a while more "deep" notes with hints of tar, tobacco, earth. Should promise well for the future. The palate follows the nose, medium full body, good acids and substancial dry tannins. Aromatic finish that just lasts and lasts! Enjoyed with roast filet of duck - great match!
