Barbaresco Fausoni Sottimano 94ag 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2010 Barbaresco Fausoni is a wine of extraordinary class. Freshly cut flowers, red raspberries, mint and anise are some of the many notes that develop in the glass. A model of understated elegance, the 2010 impresses for its balance and finesse. The tannins are remarkably polished and sophisticated for such a young Barbaresco. Floral notes reappear on the finish, adding lift to this red-hued fruit in this impeccable, gracious Barbaresco...94" AG 10/13
