Tasting Notes

Abrigo's 2016 Barbaresco Meruzzano is a rich, heady wine. Smoke, tobacco, leather, licorice, dried herbs, menthol and melted road tar give the 2016 a distinctly brooding feel that also comes through in the wine's imposing tannins and inward feel. Readers should expect a potent, virile Barbaresco that needs time in bottle to shed some of its considerable tannin. There is a lot to look forward to in this stellar Barbaresco from Abrigo.
