Medium weight, nice length and long finish. Garnet colour, cigar box, dried cherry, smooth and enjoyable.

It's only wine but I like it

A slightly more approachable Barbaresco than the norm. Nicely fragant. this is a medium-bodied red, with red fruit, firm (but not astringent) tannin and a long finish with a hint of pleasant tartness. Nice to drink now, but I think another year or two would benefit this wine. Should hold through 2020. Tasted Sept 2013.
