International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 117

Good deep red. Complex, ineffable nose combines red fruits, marzipan, tobacco and minerals. Pure, firm and sharply delineated; boasts superb richness of flavor without any undue weight. The wine's solid acid spine contributes to its impression of structure. Finishes gripping and very long.

The 2001 Barbaresco is gorgeous. Sweet balsamic notes open on the bouquet, followed intense, silky layers of fruit. The 2001 is subtle, classy and elegant from start to finish. Hints of early maturity appear in the aromatics, but the wine has more than enough fruit to support at least another decade of fine drinking. Tobacco, sweet herbs and licorice add the final notes of complexity.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Gorgeous aromas of blackberries and ripe strawberries follow through to a full-bodied palate with fine tannins and a clean, fresh finish. Very round and ripe tannins. Lovely wine. 5,800 cases made.

The 2001 has a translucent light to medium ruby hue with thin ever so slightly pigmented legs. A very aromatic and flashy nose of pure cherry, vanilla, mint, sweet oak, and a bit of earth. Gossamer elegance in the mouth with good acidity and apparently light tannin. Surprisingly approachable, drink now (2009) to 2015+.
