Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"Garnet red in colour, of good tonal intensity, complex in aroma with notes of red fruit and spices, full and velvety on the palate with a long finish and aftertaste. Its structured and full-bodied character make it an excellent match for meat dishes and for cheese."
92/100 James Suckling (2015 Vintage)
"Aromas of plums, berries and walnuts with hints of cedar. Medium-bodied, tangy and fruity with velvety tannins and a flavourful finish. Tangy yet juicy. Drink in 2020."
92/100 & Editors' Choice, Wine Enthusiast (2015 Vintage)
"Invigorating aromas of red berry, wild mint, camphor and a whiff of rose lead the nose on this radiant red. Focused and elegant, the savoury palate doles out juicy red cherry, strawberry compote, orange zest and star anise alongside fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity. It’s ethereal and ready to enjoy now, but will also offer several years of drinking pleasure. Drink now–2025."
92/100 Wine Spectator (2015 Vintage)
"Pretty, high-toned aromas of macerated cherry, strawberry, rose and earth mark this taut, elegant red. Compact now, but stretches out nicely on the finish. Best from 2022 through 2038."
92/100 Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, November 2019 (2015 Vintage)
"Easy going and already accessible. Strawberry, menthol and mint, some roses. It’s fresh, light in tannin, clean acidity, walnut and subtle earthiness, but mainly built on succulent red fruits, with a perfumed and fine finish. Almost ready to go, I feel."
90/100 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2015 Vintage)
"There is some medicinal and balsam herb in the 2015 Barbaresco that works well against the black and ripe cherry fruit at its core. However, the wine is lean and tight in the mouth. The fruit is shapely and round, making for an accessible approach overall."
