International Wine CellarMedium orange-red color. Deep, complex aromas of currant, tobacco, leather and smoke; comes across as more expressive and riper than the vineyard-designated '98 Barbarescos. Lush and smooth but with good vinosity and shape; very successful basic Barbaresco. Finishes with sweet tannins and good length.
