(Luca Currado referred to this wine as his "Barbarolo" and actually served it after the 2004 Villero Riserva): Good full red. Slightly liqueur-like aromas of raspberry, minerals and menthol. Compellingly dense, sweet and deep, with a saline minerality contributing to the wine's chewy texture. The explosive, spicy, resonating finish features strong, horizontal tannins and compelling sappiness. More elegant than Vietti's Barolos but nonetheless hugely rich for Barbaresco.
