Description

“A late harvest year after a hot and warm summer which followed an unusually cool, wet spring. The length of the growing season enabled the grapes to reach full phenolic ripeness which shows in the structure and ageing potential of the wine. The result is a modern and classical wine with a gorgeous, luscious freshness, an impressive sour cherry sweetness with a savoury twist, and a pleasing bitter note on the finish. The texture is deceptively silky, supple and approachable. And whilst this feels quite forward, there’s little doubt it will also age well and improve for the next five years and more.”
92/100, Decanter

"The 2013 Barbaresco sees fruit sourced from four separate vineyard sites across the appellation. The wine is aged in a combination of small and large oak barrel and is released one year later than its peers. Those extra 12 months of bottle aging have done a lot to improve the wine's integration and elegance. It also gives the wine more immediate appeal. In fact, this Barbaresco is ready to drink pretty much out of the gate. The mouthfeel is silky and soft and the bouquet offers a continuous stream of small fruit, cherry and licorice aromas."
91/100, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
