"The 2016 Barbaresco is a gorgeous entry-level wine in this range. Dark and fleshy, the 2016 offers terrific depth as well as plenty of character, which is great to see in its peer group. Black cherry, plum, mocha, leather, spice and licorice all meld together. One of the more open wines in the range, the Barbaresco will also give readers an idea of what to expect. This is an absolutely delicious wine in its peer group and price range. The straight Barbaresco is a blend from Meruzzano and young vine fruit from Ronchi." -Vinous
"Bright and energetic, this is full of cherry, raspberry and tar flavors, with a hint of wild herb, all matched to a rich texture. Balanced overall, this firms up as the dusty tannins kick in on the lingering finish."
