A more than good Barbaresco, coming from a vineyard in Neive village, the cru named San Cristoforo.
I was impressed by the management about wood, skilled and shrewd, despite the wine spent 18 months in oak barrels, of which 70% were new barrels.
It takes out his unmistakable varietal, coupled with great freshness, with precise references of violet and rose, hints of wild berries and a clear presence of eucalyptus. Just a fine olfactory inlay.
Also on the palate, it confirms perky, intact acidity, structured, having gentle and soft tannins. For the rest, completely turns, giving a chiseled mouth about spices, cocoa and coffee. It ends balsamic, discovering a faint and fleeting persistence.
