Rather advanced aromas of plum dried fruit and flowers follow through to a full-bodied palate with firm tannins and a long finish. Pretty and structured. Best after 2009. 3500 cases made. (JS)

The 2001 Barbaresco normale is a lovely effort that displays a classic perfumed profile of roses menthol tobacco wet earth and red fruits on a structured frame with excellent length and a nice sense of freshness on the finish.
