Still very young, but also approachable. Quite dark style, yet elegant. Textbook Barbaresco, upside ahead.

Quite similar style to Antica, but I fond Antica slightly more complex. However a very well made wine.

Compact nose with cassis, chocolate and cedar. Quite smooth, loads of fruit, some plum. Dry finish, good amount of tannins. Needs time to integrate the elements, but will probably enter the window in not too many years.

Looks like people have very mixed experiences with this particular vintage for Cappellano. However, this bottle was quite perfect and showing the rustic vintage character. Still very youthful. I only wonder whether the tannins will outlive the fruit.

Enjoyable and textbook Mersault with nice complexity. My only worry is that it seemed a bit more developed than expected.

Very young now, and the oak is present. But the fruit quality and concentration is very good. I believe this one has a great future.

C’innamon, oak and red fruit on the nose. Fruity on the palate, with noticeable oak. A bit too much.
