The 2008 Barbaresco emerges from the glass with sweet red cherries, spices, flowers and licorice. This is an attractive Barbaresco with excellent depth and a firm, tannic spine that is very nicely integrated with the fruit.The 2008 isn’t a blockbuster, but it should drink well with minimum cellaring. This is a classic, linear Barbaresco endowed with terrific energy and focus.Right now the 2008 seems to be holding its cards close to the vest. I would ne be surprised to see it show even better in a few years’ time.

Intense aromas of plums and dark fruits. Pure fruit here. Full body, with velvety tannins and hints of new wood. This is structured and chewy but shows loads of fruit underneath. This shows wonderful potential. Try in 2013.
