#3 Wine Enthusiast Top 100 Cellars Selections 2019, 96 points: "Rose, violet, just-tilled vineyard soil and perfumed berry are just some of the aromas you'll find on this dazzling, fragrant red. The elegant, delicious palate is chock-full of elegance and flavor, delivering juicy Morello cherry, raspberry compote, cake spice and a balsamic note. It boasts fantastic tension and finesse, and will be even better with more bottle age. Gorgeous. Drink 2026–2036."
Us: Hard to top that note! I wouldn't be afraid to decant for an hour and drink this with dinner, but I'm never afraid of young Barbaresco (quite the contrary – I love it.) A classy and classic wine without the "classic" price tag. - Marcus
