This Barbaresco stands out for its harmonious, well-balanced expression, with a luscious floral-scented bouquet, magisterial structure, and lingering taste. At once crisp and elegant, with a succulent mouthfeel, this superb classic lends itself to immediate enjoyment or to medium/long-term cellaring.

Camphor, rose and red berry aromas shape the enticing nose on this savory red. The linear, structured palate is all about finesse, featuring ripe Morello cherry, crushed strawberry and star anise alongside taut, polished tannins and fresh acidity.

The 2018 Barbaresco shows a slightly sweet side with dried plum or cherry confit. But there is a tart fruit and savory side as well that veers toward grilled rosemary, spice and iron ore. These unfold quickly as the wine takes on more air in the glass. These results are accessible and very pretty. The wine awards you a straight-shooting expression of Barbaresco that is balanced and proper. About 10,000 bottles were released.

The 2018 Barbaresco is a pretty, understated wine. Dark cherry, plum, spice, lavender, mocha and orange zest open effortlessly in the glass. The 2018 balances lovely fruit expression and textural depth in a soft, quiet style that is hugely appealing.

A delicate style, offering flavors of strawberry, cherry, rose and a hint of menthol. Linear, ending with a chalky feel on the compact finish. Best from 2024 through 2038. 850 cases made, 500 cases imported.
