Tasted at the winery yesterday in a Barbaresco sammich of 2014 and 2016. Happy days. Coming soon to Australia I believe, though it's been released elsewhere for a while now. Red fruit, sugared almond, sage and mint, some spice and new leather. Mid-weight, very open for business, liquorice richness but still fresh, fine dusting of tannin, so much charm and even ripeness. Flat out delicious wine, affable and easy to latch on to. Good now and better again over the medium term. Alcohol : 14%; Price : $80.00; Drink: 2019 - 2030; Rating: 94 Points; Gary Walsh; Wine Front
I tasted this wine after bottling but before its commercial release. The 2015 Barbaresco will hit the market on September 1st. It was scheduled to be released in October, but because Produttori del Barbaresco is already out of stock of the 2014 Barbaresco, they decided to move this release up and shorten waiting times. I mention that because you definitely don't want to pop the cork too early. The 2015 vintage opens to a visibly darker color and thicker concentration compared to recent past vintages. Next to the upcoming 2016 and 2017 editions, we can expect 2015 to be the most fruit-forward of the three. You get dark tones of plum and blackberry with dry tannins at the rear.

Charming aromas of cherry, strawberry and rose are inviting in this red, with flavors to match, showing ripeness and focus. Earth and mineral elements chime in as this firms up, but the harmony is there and this should really sing in about five years. Best from 2022 through 2040. Rating: 93 Points; Wine Spectator
Rose petal, dark spice and camphor aromas slowly take shape in the glass along with a whiff of tar. Juicy and delicious, the smooth full-bodied palate has a weightless elegance, delivering succulent Marasca cherry, ripe raspberry, licorice and tobacco while fine-grained tannins provide support. Drink 2021–2027. Rating: 93 Points; Kerin O'Keefe; Wine Enthusiast
