Pure, high-toned red berry aromas and flavors with green peppercorn, spice and almond notes, surround a core of vivid acidity and moderate tannins. Similar in character to Barolo, but more delicate, this Barbaresco has great aging potential. Starts out softly, with fading cherry, leather, soy and earth flavors. The tannins build to a light burr, though overall, this red remains fresh. Tobacco and underbrush notes grace the long finish. Best from 2019 through 2030.
