>> “The 2009 Barbaresco Nubiola blossoms on the palate with juicy dark cherries, flowers and spices, all of which come together in a voluptuous style that is highly appealing. Layers of dark, spice-infused fruit swirl around in the glass all the way through to the huge, voluptuous finish. This plush, layered Barbaresco is inviting and offers pure sophistication from the very first taste. Pelissero aged the Nubiola in a blend of cask and barrique. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.”
