    Extremely perfumed and attractive with blueberry and cherry aromas and hints of flowers, following through to a full body with firm and silky tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Give it another two or three years to come together.

    The 2016 Barbaresco Bernadot takes the intensity level up a notch when compared to the base Barbaresco that I tasted immediately before this wine. The Bernadot is silky and fine with a pretty embroidery of floral aromas, cola, grilled herb and balsam herb. It will enjoy a long cellar life, at least a decade, but this wine is also perfect for near and medium-term drinking.

    This red shows great purity, with rose, strawberry, cherry and mineral flavors. Elegant, taut and balanced within the profile. The finish conjures up tobacco and orange peel accents. Best from 2022 through 2040.

    Wild berry, rose petal, menthol and toasted nut aromas lead the nose. The tight, linear palate offers sour cherry, cracked pepper, orange rind and star anise alongside close-grained tannins and vibrant acidity. It's still austere and primary, with an astringent finish.
