2010 Barbaresco Riserva Spezie, Vite Colte
Needed some time in the glass to unfold, with a somewhat mature nose with notes of hard cherry candy, asphalt, Christmas spices and some ligthly smoked meat. Very, very good.
The taste is tigher than the nose leads you to believe with notes of rosehips, hard cherry candy and dark licorice. Some perky tannins in the finish. Fine. 5+ years.
