Like a heavyweight boxer, Barbaresco delivers power with elegance – when it’s good. That’s the case here. It starts smooth, with seductive cherry liqueur, then evolves with flavours of damp earth and mineral, pulled together on a tight backbone of grippy tannins. Though accessible now, it should improve over the next decade. Available in Ontario.
