A very special bottle, the 2009 Barbaresco Maria Adelaide boasts a light garnet color and budding tertiary aromas of cured meat, saddle leather, dried fruit, black licorice, cigar smoke, pencil shavings and crushed anise seed. The complexity of the bouquet is really quite remarkable, especially those delicate mineral notes that are so forthcoming. That said, oak-driven tones of cinnamon and cardamom still need time to integrate within the greater fabric of the wine. The texture here is soft and very supple and the mouthfeel is relatively lightweight. Barbaresco Maria Adelaide is a masterful achievement and a wine to put aside in your cellar. - Monica Larner

This red smacks of cherry, raspberry, flowers and tobacco, riding on a wave of acidity and tannins that are supportive and well-integrated. Firm on the finish, with a long, minerally aftertaste. Best from 2016 through... This red smacks of cherry, raspberry, flowers and tobacco, riding on a wave of acidity and tannins that are supportive and well-integrated.
