f we could sum this wine up in a single word, we wouldn't hesitate to define it as "classic". As tradition suggests, this Barbaresco is the fruit of the assembly of several parcels of land, coming from some of our most beautiful vineyards. The idea is that of naturally obtaining balance by harmonising different expressions, often contrasting ones. The result is a liquid expression of a terroir, tempting and typical, a synopsis of one Langa, that of Barbaresco, which moves in the glass, alternating between structure and elegance.
A bright, cherry-flavored red, with accents of iron, tobacco and tar, this Barbaresco is vibrant and shows excellent tension. Balanced and juicy, with a chalky feel on the long finish. Best from 2024 through 2038. 150 cases imported.
The 2018 Barbaresco is a very pretty, ethereal wine to drink now and over the next handful of years. Crushed flowers, spice, tobacco, cedar and mint are all laced together in this super-classy Barbaresco. The 2018 is gorgeous today and will drink well for another decade.
The shy nose offers whiffs of French oak, camphor and dark spice. The lean palate is also rather shy, offering vanilla, coffee bean and the barest hint of dried cherry alongside dusty, drying tannins.
