An elegant and silky textured example of a fine Barbaresco. Lovely cherry flavours predominate with hints of chocolate and floral undertones. The tannin structure is fine but firm with the added complexity of spicy oak.
About this bottle: Roberto Bianco tends this single vineyard in the eastern part of the village of Barbaresco much as his forefathers have – all six generations of them. The Bianco family are one of the historic families of the area where the Nebbiolo grape rules supreme. He chooses to treat his grapes with tender care to extract supple tannins and age the wine in older, larger French oak barrels to add subtle spicy oak flavours that do not dominate the elegant fruit structure of the wine. The wine has been treated to preserve the flavour and may throw a harmless deposit.
