Three Times 2016 Barbaresco Starderi

2016 Barbaresco Starderi, Renato Fenocchio
A handsome, elegant nose with notes of red currants, dry licorice, roses and forest floor. Very fine.
The taste is floral and focused with notes of rosehips, red currants, dried strawberries and chrushed rocks. Silky tannins. Long. 6+ years.

2016 Barbaresco Starderi, Icardi
A big, forward nose with initally some new oak, which on day two was nicely integrated, with additonal notes of hard cherry candy, coffee powder, tobacco and smoke. Very deep.
The taste is tight and structured with notes of cherry chocolate, tobacco, bonfire and earth. Long and distinct. Some oak in the end of the finish, which wasn´t noticable on day two. 8+ years.

2016 Barbaresco Starderi, Traversa
A deep, old fashioned, earthy nose with notes of dried raspberries, root vegetables, old tobacco and a hint of VA, in a positive way. Very fine.
The taste doesn´t apologize and shows a multi layered profile with notes of dried cherries, undergrowth, dog fur, old leather and red beets. Brilliant tannins. Really fine. 6+ years.
