2017 Barbaresco

2017 Barbaresco

Let me start by saying that the 2017 vintage in the Piedmont region was spectacular. The wine starts with an overwhelming concentration of fruit. Rich spice, tobacco, and black cherry-scented wine is massive on the palate. It continues with dried rose petals, tar, cedar, truffles, licorice, and almost a cherry liqueur. With this much going on, it’s important to know all these flavors are held together by great tannins and long vibrant acid.
