That dark fruit center is surrounded by supple but delicate tones of exotic spice, smoke, tar, licorice and crushed stone. This is a fragrant and elegant expression that drinks beautifully straight out of the gate. This is a classic Barbaresco with an easy and approachable personality. Production is 25,000 bottles strong.- ML collapse

Pio Boffa doesn't see this as a 'basic' or 'regular' bottling of Barbaresco, rather referring to it as the estate's 'classic' bottling, as opposed to the single-vineyard Il Bricco. And it's certainly 'classic' in outlook: the wine is matured for 24-30 months in mostly large oak botti, with a small amount in barrique. Sourced from four vineyards, three of which are in Treiso - the most elevated Barbaresco village - this has very fine, ripe yet fresh tannins with some gentle, savoury-edged red fruits. There's a slight strawberry plushness on the finish. A great match for lamb served pink.

It's medium-bodied, light, and elegant, with silky tannins and outstanding length. It has plenty of upfront appeal and is going to evolve for 15 years or more with ease. collapse
