Villa Rosa Barbaresco 2016 (Italy)
Black cherry, tar, tobacco and earth notes mingle across the complex bouquet. A lush, juicy style of Barbaresco, this fills the rich texture with cherry, strawberry, licorice and leather flavors. Supple yet firm, with terrific balance, ending with a long aftertaste of sweet fruit, mineral and vanilla. The tannins are well-integrated for a young Nebbiolo, leading to a long finish. Drink now, and over the next 10 years.
