Bordini Barbaresco DOCG
Compelling aromas of fragrant blue flower, red berry, crushed herb, new leather and tilled earth shape the nose. On the savory, full-bodied palate, taut, fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity frame flavors of ripe Marasca cherry, raspberry compote, licorice and tobacco. It’s young but already boasts a fantastic combination of elegance and structure. Drink 2022–2030.
A top note of mint augments the cherry, strawberry, eucalyptus and tar flavors in this austere red. Assertive tannins gird the finish, yet this remains long and finds equilibrium in the end. Best from 2023 through 2035.
