Italy — Piedmont • $30.95 • 90/100

This is a very good introduction to Barbaresco. The colour is a transparent ruby-garnet, while the nose presents earthy cherry, raspberry and blackberry fruit, with notes of dried flowers, baking spice and leather. The wine is dry, with firm acidity and fine, persistent tannins, and just a note of heat from the alcohol. While there is still a core of fruit on the palate, the story is about the structure and the evolving savoury notes. Tannins gather and linger on the finish. Drink now, or cellar for the medium term. • Tasted 2017-02-04 • LCBO id#360016 • Find it at your nearest LCBOTRADESA CORP. (Agent)
