"Fresh and racy with cherries, raspberry leaf, dried flowers and chocolate orange. Medium- to full-bodied with firm, dusty tannins and vivid acidity. Fresh and attractive spiced red berry character with a dry, mineral finish. Better after 2025."

"The 2020 Barbaresco was sourced from the vineyards of Bassarin, Muccagatta, and Cott and raised in once-used oak barrels. It displays a bright ruby color, and although it's well-managed, it has notable oak spice up front that gives way to notes of cedar, cherries, rosemary, and violets. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and good richness on the mid-palate, it offers a velvety texture with a modern slant that's approachable now, and it will likely have an open drinking window over the next 5-7 years."

"An earthy, slightly somber style, offering leather, sweet spices, menthol and earth that frame macerated plum and cherry fruit. Features ample freshness and mouthcoating, chalky tannins on the finish. Best from 2026 through 2038. 500 cases made, 150 cases imported."
