ROAGNA BARBARESCO ALBESANI

CA$168.15
Albesani leaves nothing to be desired, in expression and character it is simply grandiose. The fresh bouquet of flowers, chalk, tobacco and cherries continues on the palate, where a beguilingly silky tannin and aromatic intensity virtually rob the senses. A masterpiece from Luca Roagna! SUPERIORE.DE

"The 2015 Barbaresco Albesani is gracious, floral and lifted, which is not common in Albesani, where the wines tend to be more powerful. Bright acids and lively tannins give the 2015 its shape and energy. This translucent, inviting Barbaresco has so much to offer." VINOUS

"A combination of spicy cherry, iron, tobacco and tar aromas and flavors are woven into the dense tannins in this sinewy red. There's an essence of ripe fruit, yet this requires time to reconcile its gripping structure." WINE SPECTATOR

"With fruit from Neive, the 2015 Barbaresco Albesani (with only 2,616 bottles made) is a delicate, almost fragile wine with a dark ruby shine. The bouquet is finessed and detail-oriented, with cassis, dried cranberry, smoky flint and a lifted tone of balsam herb or dried ginger. The wine is very fresh with beautifully balanced acidity and a bright point of candied violet or lilac on the graceful finish. Albesani is a princess in the Roagna family." ROBERT PARKER
