Way too young to be enjoyed now.
This single vineyard barolo is completely dominated nby well integrated oak bouquet with just hints of blueberries and spices
The mouth is completely numbed by a massive tannin atack that derives the wine from its balance and fruity flavors.
Not enough acidity to support the fruits, this wine is a robust big chewy wine that neglected its connection to the vine to become a "bruce Willis" barrel guy.
Should a Barbaresco be produced every year from its region or should it reflect a certain character?
This young and fruity wine is a beautiful reflection of Nebbiolo but has hardly the Tannic structure one would expect from a Barbaresco.
Red and black cherries with some hints of tobacco both on the nose and in the mouth ( quite consistent ) with a spicy finish,
Easy drinking Barbaresco ? yes it is
Enjoy now - 2023
Rosso di Montepulciano 2013
Ripe and friendly, a typical Avignonesi style, modern,fruity with a very mild touch of spice and oak.
In the mouth the wine reveals well constructed tannins and an acidic bite that lingers in the after taste.
Medium bodied and fairly priced at 99 nis.
Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 2011
Still closed but can prove an enjoyable quaff. Well balaned and moutflling will prove a good match to fresh herb seasoned food
at 199.00 buy and stock till 2018 or simple enjoy the Rosso
A long distance runner that is bound to loose on any short distance plan. Too much new oak, massive tannin structure. Closed by all means in need to be opened no sooner than 2022 and to be enjoyed by 2035
