"This fragrant red opens with aromas of blue flower, resin, star anise and underbrush. Full-bodied and elegantly structured, the savory palate offers ripe raspberry, cranberry and baking spice alongside firm, fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity." Wine Enthusiast 96 points (2019 vintage)
Very attractive spice and floral aromas in the 2020 Barbaresco include smoky incense, cranberry, and dusty earth. Medium-bodied, it has a nice arch of the fruit throughout, revealing notes of blood orange, raspberry, and dried roses. It has good balance and a clean finish, with loads of citrus propelling the wine forward. Drink 2023-2030.
