Pio Cesare Barbaresco 2015 + 2017
With both vintages accorded 92 points by Ms Monica Larner, this classic Barbaresco drinks fantastically well right out of the gate and this includes the younger vintage which retains its subtle elegance and consistent elements of finese continues to shine through.
A very classical style Barbaresco: elegance and velvety, with ripe and spicy fruit. Strong tannins, but elegant. Good structure and concentration. Very long life. Barbaresco is a great wine it should not be described as a “basic” or “regular” Barbaresco, simply because it does not have any additional indication on the label.
