||WA: The 2004 Barbaresco is a very pretty, layered wine. Vibrant and fresh on the palate, it offers sweet dark fruit, menthol and spices with outstanding length and terrific harmony. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2019.

||WS: Lots of ripe strawberry and raspberry aromas follow through to a full-bodied palate, with chewy tannins and a long, caressing finish. A well-crafted red. Best after 2011. 2,915 cases made. –JS|

Good bright, deep red. Dark cherry, currant, leather and nutty oak on the nose. Juicy and sappy with extract, showing a pungent freshness to the flavors of cherry and dried rose. Firm acids and building tannins give this dense Barbaresco excellent backbone. This still needs a few years in the bottle. 89(+?) points|
