Community Tasting Note

  • Finare Vinare wrote: 89 points

    June 18, 2012 - Heavy toast on the nose: tar, burnt wood, espresso, liquorice, dark chocolate, vanilla... you get the picture. Deep and rounded on the palate, dense black fruit, slightly inky, acids blurred by the oak which also imparts some bitter tannins. Still fairly young, actually. Other tasters were quite enthusiastic about this bottle - two out of five even held it as their favourite among five barberas including 06 G Conterno, 08 B Mascarello, 06 Cappellano and 04 Roagna - but it wasn't much fun to us. Last bottle, won't buy again, ever.
