93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2007

($200; white label; Giacosa sold off his other 2003 Barbarescos) Medium red. Very ripe aromas and flavors of strawberry liqueur and smoke. Surprisingly sappy and fresh, with a sexy sweetness leavened by lively acidity. There's a liqueur-like quality to this 2003 along with a creamy richness of texture. Features a rising, fresh finish rare for the vintage and fine, granular, building tannins. This is 15% alcohol, from fruit picked on September 23.
