This wine has finesse and character of one of those Barbaresco's that is elegant and refined. The wine has balance and structure with fragrant cherries and black fruit. Medium mouth feel and silky smooth palate and a nice lingering finish of dark cherries. Not aggressive like some but smooth and silky. One of my truly favorite Barbaresco's. Some may feel it is lacking in complexity and depth but it is this balance that makes the wine so pleasant and a great compliment to Italian food. Drinking now and for the next 2-3 years. The tannins are not sufficient for much longer.
Nebbiolo: Boom! Che naso. Espressivo, generoso, fiori, sale/mare, frutto polposo e croccante, un'idea vegetale da friggitello, netta la complessità, carne cruda, viola appassita, un naso colorato. Acidità biricchina, fresco e leggero con grande struttura. Gastronomico, da provare con una cotoletta alla milanese.
Gallina... most crus have the heart vineyard, and then politics get involved and make the cru bigger, and bigger, particarularlly with monetary success.
So tight and intense on the nose, its there, just not givin' it up easily. Which is usually a sign of greatness. Sweet rose petals and cherries coming out with swirling. And I am being told a purity to the wine, and yes, I would agree. And massive structure.
Beautiful acid and tannin structure, strawberry, rose petals and tobacco leaf on the nose. Lovely mouth feel with much the same as the nose but with some liquorice and almost milk chocolate on the lovely persistent finish. Very enjoyable!
