Barbaresco 2016 & Riserva 2014: Latest releases

Stephen Brook reports on the latest vintage releases from Barbaresco...

Barbaresco 2016

Very warm weather in early September and October fully ripened the grapes, which remained healthy. Structured, balanced wines of finesse and freshness. Worth waiting for.

After a mild and mostly dry winter, the spring of 2016 was rainier but cool temperatures kept disease at bay.
