Barbaresco

Piedmont, Italy

[92 pts James Suckling]

Varietal(s):
100% Nebbiolo

Tasting Notes:

"Tangy cherry and raspberry aromas are lifted by flowers and mint on the cool, inviting nose. Silky-sweet and floral, with lovely inner-mouth juiciness to its red berry flavors. Owing to the wine's moderate body and flesh, the tannins show a slightly dryness but the long, juicy finish offers enticing floral perfume. A lovely, sharply delineated Barbaresco at a very reasonable price." Stephen Tanzer

Breaking News - Piedmont, Italy:
    
     Home to some of the finest Italian wines, generations of farmers have passed down folklore about flawless harvests like the 2010 vintage in Piedmont. However, a small group of farmers are outraged. Their once in a generation crop cannot be bottled with the Riserva Barbaresco designation due to a technicality. As such, their choice fruit is now part of the regular Barbaresco bottling.
    But that bitter sweet tale is not the whole story. The real news is coming out of America where consumers in the know are getting some of the most ridicious value Barbaresco made in years, possibly ever. Cited as the best vintage in decades, stores such as Englewood Wine Merchants are suggesting you "run, don't walk" to get this amazing value.
    This bitter sweet story is due to a long standing agreement among farmers that mandates they all declassify their fruit in any year that just one cru owner does not wish to make a Riserva. In such an instance, they ALL topple and cannot make a Riserva.
    We will keep you posted as news from this vintage continues. In the meantime, enjoy this gift from Piedmont that boasts "tangy cherry and raspberry aromas....silky-sweet and floral, with lovely inner-mouth juiciness to its red berry flavors.
