Winefront Gary Walsh – 95+pts Fresh, bright, red fruits, perfume, mint and almond. Medium-bodied, ripe open grained tannin, succulent, expressive red fruits, some dried herb and new leather. Long and sweet fruited to close. Tannin is a highlight. A wine that’s precise, fine and inwardly lit, such is its brightness. Very bloody good. A classic PdB. 2022-2036+
Vinous Media Antonio Galloni - 94pts The 2016 Barbaresco is a stunning wine with tremendous richness for this bottling. Ample, deep and powerful, the 2016 exudes pedigree and class from start to finish. I can't remember a straight Barbaresco here with this much fruit density and unctuous richness, and yet there is more than enough tannin and overall structure to give the wine its classically leaning feel. A blast of sweet red cherry fruit, tobacco, menthol licorice and smoke hits the potent finish. What a wine! 2021-2041
Wine Advocate Monica Larner - 95pts The 2016 Barbaresco is a tight and beautiful wine that will require more time to unwind and soften. This beautifully balanced vintage is characterized by a tight inner core of fruit that underlines the graceful aging capacity of these wines. The 2016 is shaping up to be one destined for long cellar aging. Now in its youth, the wine offers wild berry, rose and licorice aromas. 2022-2040
Antonio Galloni on the 2016 Barbaresco Vintage: The 2016s, wines from a potentially historic vintage, may very well put Barbaresco on the map big time. As I travelled from producer to producer, I experienced that sense of excitement and energy I always feel when in the presence of important vintages and wines.
About Barbaresco: Similar to its more famous sibling Barolo, Barbaresco is made from 100 percent Nebbiolo and shares its cult status as one of the finest wines in the world. However, there are several differences between the two. Barbaresco has a slightly maritime climate: warmer, drier and milder than its neighbor. This means its grapes tend to ripen earlier than those in Barolo. As a result, the wines are less tannic and more approachable at an earlier age. However there is still plenty of acidity and tannins to make this an ageworthy red. Barbaresco is characterized by its rich, spicy flavors and perfumed sweetness and is considered more elegant and refined than its counterpart, which is a more robust and longer-lived red. Regulations stipulate that Barbaresco must have a minimum alcohol content of 12.5 percent and undergo two years of aging, one of which must be spent in wooden barrels. For the added designation of riserva, the ageing increases to four years, with one of those years in wood.
