2017 Cascina delle Rose Barbaresco DOCG 'Rio Sordo'
Majestic! From the stellar Rio Sordo vineyard, one of the top in all of Barbaresco, and a legendary vintage!
96 points, Wine Enthusiast. "More structured than Tre Stelle, this is another intriguing, gorgeous Barbaresco that shows the firm's hallmark of elegance. It opens with aromas of ripe, dark-skinned fruit, truffle, violet, mint and a compelling earthy note suggesting game. On the youthfully austere palate, tightly wound but noble tannins and bright acidity support juicy Marasca cherry, licorice, mint and brown spice. It's already tempting, but give it time to unwind and develop even more complexity. Drink 2024–2036. "
