Available for:
Deep red color. Bouquet is complex and gently spiced, white truffle and herb aroma. Taste is well structured, fine tannins, austere with plenty of fruit, smoke and earth notes. Ideal with grilled food, sauced and elaborate red meat and wild game, or just to be enjoyed by itself.

The 2006 Barbaresco Vigneto Valeirano is another exuberant wine. Here, too, the aromatics literally jump out of the glass, as layers of perfumed super-ripe fruit are intermingled with a persistent vein of minerality. The powerful, focused Valeirano offers outstanding balance, but needs a few years in bottle for the tannins to melt away. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2021.

Plum and tar on the nose follow through a full-bodied palate, with chewy tannins and a finish of berry, cedar and wood. A little austere, with aggressive new barrel character, even slightly green wood, but should turn out just fine. Best after 2011. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
