Tasting notes

The 2014 Barbaresco Albesani is quite restrained in this vintage, with less of the sheer explosiveness it has shown in some recent vintages. Even so, the natural breadth of this site comes through in the wine's ample, layered personality. Dark cherry, lavender, menthol, sage and new leather grow with time in the glass, and yet the 2014 remains translucent and deceptively medium in body. It will be fascinating to see if the Albesani gains volume with more time in bottle. Today, it offers good potential.
