Critical Acclaim:

James Suckling 94

Really beautiful 2017 Barbaresco with ripe cherry, orange peel and light chocolate at the end. It’s full-bodied, tight and focused with a long, flavorful finish. Give it some time to come together. Try after 2023.

This red is marked by a mix of juniper, eucalyptus and thyme flavors, with bright black currant and bilberry fruit. The initial suppleness is replaced by dense, dusty tannins as this winds down on the long finish. Best from 2023 through 2039.
