Beni di Batasiolo Barbaresco 2012
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barbaresco|
|Brand||Beni di Batasiolo|
Clear garnet red color with delicate orange highlights. It is ethereal, pleasant, intense and persistent, delicately spicy with hints of florals and cooked fruit. The flavor is dry, full, robust, charming, with soft tannins and nice freshness.
This offers aromas of ripe dark fruit, crushed rose, and a warm whiff of toast. On the palate, notes of clove and grilled sage accent a core of wild cherry. It's still young, with nervous acidity and assertive but refined tannins. Drink after 2018.
