La Contea Barbaresco Ripa Sorita 2006

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

AWE blind tasting - lovely floral notes greet the nose, this has really nice incense notes on the nose, fresh and downright pretty with building notes of licorice and medicinal spice, fresh and precise in the mouth with fairly deep and very fresh red berry fruit, a touch of peach and lovely soil tones keep this engaging though it lacks the depth of the best wines it still has great purity and a lovely slightly minty/sage finish with crisp fine grained tannins and good length 90-91
