Medium red with an amber rim. Strawberry, cherry, menthol and earth on the nose. Silky and fat with cherry, rose petal and marzipan flavor; very ripe and sweet but not cooked. A broad, fat, large-scaled Barbaresco that finishes with big, dusty tannins and noteworthy persistence. Excellent for the vintage.

The 2003 Barbaresco is sweet and perfumed with pretty notes of smoke, flowers, cinnamon and ripe red fruit. This medium-bodied, focused wine offers outstanding length and remarkable freshness for the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2018.
