Right garnet, more left to the floral perfume. Bright red, lightly spicy and fresher strawberry than the standard Barbaresco. More lifted light brown spice intensely on the palate. Long and cool with super fine chalky tannins and a mineral component. Outstanding wine. Ian Cook, FWC.
“More succulence and bouncy red fruit than Montestefano, more playful in a way, along with almond and floral perfume rising up, cool acidity, biscuit spices, kitten’s tongue tannin rasp, and a long and supple finish. Magnificent wine, so brightly lit and delicious. What a great wine this is. Drink 2022- 2036+.” 96+ points. Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.
