Ruby-red in color with garnet highlights. Aromas of dried cherries and rose petals are complemented by undertones of violets, licorice, vanilla, and spices. On the palate, this wine is medium-bodied and rich with flavors of tart cherries, rose petals, and hints of truffles with a long, impressive finish. Pair this wine with roasted lamb shank, Bordelaise sauces, and pork torchons.

Wine AdvocateBoasting a classic approach to Nebbiolo, the 2013 Barbaresco offers a pure and traditional interpretation of Piedmont's noble grape. The wine is lean and compact in delivery with a vertical thrust of aromas that spans from wild berry and licorice to ash and dried rose petal. There are warmer layers of tar and coffee at the back. The wine shows great overall balance and silkiness.

Wine EnthusiastThis Barbaresco opens with aromas of French oak, coconut, dark fruit and a dash of exotic spices. The firm palate offers cranberry, roasted coffee bean and oak-driven spice alongside bracing tannins that tightly grip the finish.
