Castello di Verduno Barbaresco 2016 Barbaresco
A blend of wine from the Rabaja and Faset vineyards. Aged for 18 months in large used Slavonian oak vats. Red fruit and dark spice aromas form the nose, the linear, savoury palate is still young but already shows succulent red cherry, crushed raspberry, star anise and clove while refined tannins and bright acidity provide finesse and freshness. An excellent buy from one of the greatest vintages of recent times.
