The 2009 Barbaresco Rombone is bursting at the seams with textural elegance and finesse. Sweet red cherries, mint, flowers and tobacco all take shape in this arresting, voluptuous Barbaresco. The Rombone is another wine... The 2009 Barbaresco Rombone is bursting at the seams with textural elegance and finesse. Sweet red cherries, mint, flowers and tobacco all take shape in this arresting, voluptuous Barbaresco. The Rombone is another wine that captures the best attributes of the vintage. Layers of dark fruit, menthol and sweet spices wrap around the lush, full-bodied finish. The Rombone spent one year in barrique and another in cask. This is a true stand-out in a vintage full of inconsistent wines. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024. Bruno Nada is one of the most underrated and overlooked growers in Piedmont. His are among the few wines that actually deliver on the vision so strongly advocated by the modern school in Piedmont, which is to say wines that drink well early and age. Recently, Bruno Nada has been joined by his son Danilo, ensuring what I hope will eventually be a smooth transition to the next generation. Nada’s 2009 Barbareschi had only been bottled ten days before this tasting, so readers should keep that in mind when perusing these notes.
