2004 Pio Cesare, Barbaresco
|Origin:||Italy, North West, Piedmont|
|Date tasted:||10 February 2010|
|Price when tasted:||£38.99|
And if only red will do, then why not go for this superb Barbaresco from one of the best producers in Piedmont. Lighter and more elegant than a Barolo, this Barbaresco exhibits a beautiful scented nose with aromas of violet, ripe red cherries and a hint of liquorice. The palate is well-balanced, nicely coated with fine tannins and has a long lingering finish. A must try.
