The 2008 Barbaresco emerges from the glass with sweet red cherries, spices, flowers and licorice. This is an attractive Barbaresco with excellent depth and a firm, tannic spine that is very nicely integrated with the fruit. The 2008 isn't a blockbuster, but it should drink well with minimum cellaring. This is a classic, linear Barbaresco endowed with terrific energy and focus. Right now the 2008 seems to be holding its cards close to the vest. I would not be surprised to see it show even better in a few years' time. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2028. Medium red with a hint of amber at the edge. Soil-driven aromas of red fruits, mocha, smoke, underbrush and dried rose. Sweet, plush, seamless and elegant; distinctly suaver than the 2009, with the dried flower element lifting the mid-palate. Lovely nuanced wine, finishing long and serious, with broad, ripe, building tannins and very good grip. Chewy in texture, offering flavors of cherry, tar, licorice...


Winemaker's Notes:

Garnet color. The nose is almost sensual in its complexity, with aromas of forest fruits, plums, licorice, mineral and coffee scents. Long, complex finish with fine, silk-like tannins and good acidity; dense structure, full of super-ripe fruit.
