90(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2009

(aged for two years in Slavonian casks) Bright ruby-red. Pure, perfumed aromas of blackberry, cassis, licorice and bitter chocolate. Dense, sweet and clean, with powerful but fine-grained fruit given razor-sharp definition by penetrating acidity. Has the sheer stuffing to support its strong structure.

I'd hold off on this very impressive barbera for a couple of years.
