Tasting Notes

"We all know when Produttori del Barbaresco decide not to bottle all their great nine grower crus, the resulting wines are all blended into the Barbaresco DOCG normale cuvee. 2018 is just such a vintage and sure enough, eager collectors have been waiting for this super charged Nebbiolo release. On initial examination, the wine shows the most pretty, lifted, inviting aromatics of dried rose petals, crushed coriander, tart red cherries, salty blueberries and a seductive red liquorice complexity. On the palate, there is an attractive translucent purity and silky filigree tannins that combine with a suave, lithe, harmonious concentration of red cherry candied fruits, touches of tar, saline cassis, sloe berries and a finish that typifies true, pure classical Nebbiolo fruit. While the seductive allure of the perfumed aromatics currently outpace the slightly backwardness of the palate fruit density and structure, all the signs in the glass point to another extremely fine and supremely attractive Barbaresco release. Drink from 2022 to 2034+."

94 Points - Greg Sherwood MW, October 2021

"The 2018 is an absolutely lovely showing which offers pretty aromas of dried red berries that sit along side, licorice, orange zest, wild flowers, wet stones and hint of spices that all come together beautifully . This possesses a gorgeous medium bodied textured that is structured with fine tannins. The elegant finish is long and mineral driven, with red berries and licorice leaving flavors leaving a lasting impression. This is a gorgeous Barbaresco that is already quite appealing, that being said, it is also an age worthy wine that should also thrive in the cellar."
