94+ Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2000
Saturated ruby-red color. Knockout nose combines plum liqueur, cherry, dried rose and menthol; complex, vibrant and perfumed. Then extremely young and sharply focused, with powerful acid spine and tannic backbone giving the superbly sweet, thoroughly ripe flavors great cut and thrust. But this extremely dense Barbaresco is still an infant. Smoke and animal notes add complexity. Finishes with huge, sweet, molar-coating tannins and explosive length. This classically styled Barbaresco has all the components for greatness.
