Cascina Delle Rose Barbaresco Rio Sordo 2005When tasting these wines, the most remarkable thing is their elegance, grace and perfume.

Aromatic with dried cherries, rose petals, autumn leaves and licorice. And while approachable in their youth, these Barbareschi are by no means wimpy. They have the depth and classic structure of traditional Piedmontese Nebbiolo, and should continue to evolve for 15-20 years.
