Villa Rossa Barbaresco 2013
Mixed colors of ruby, plum, and brick converge in the glass. Black cherry, tar, tobacco and earth notes mingle across the complex bouquet. A lush, juicy style of Barbaresco, this fills the rich texture with cherry, strawberry, licorice and leather flavors. Supple yet firm, with terrific balance, ending with a long aftertaste of sweet fruit, mineral and vanilla. The tannins are well-integrated for a young Nebbiolo, leading to a long finish. Drink now, and over the next 10 years. Pairs well with truffles, mushrooms, wild game, and lasagna.
