Who doesn’t want Riserva Barbaresco in large format? We have very limited availability of these and sold out quickly of the previous vintage. Fruit for the Reserva comes from a parcel of old vines in the Rabajà vineyard. This wine sees 30 months of wood aging, followed by time in bottle. I have not yet had a chance to taste this wine, but when he wrote his description of the wine, Antonio Galloni describes it as one of the best he has every tried from the winery. Comparable to the 2006 but with more juiciness and perfume. The 2008 expresses notes of dark fruit character; cherry, blueberry, botanical herbs, mint and a balsamic cedar quality.
