Pio Cesare Barbaresco 2009
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barbaresco|
Aromas of shaved chocolate, some nuts and red berries. Full body, with compacted tannins that are soft and velvety. Serious intensity on the finish. Savory. Black truffle character now. Chinese spices. Better in 2015. This is a blend of three vineyards including Il Bricco.
The sweet cherry fruit is amplified by vanilla and toasty oak notes, accompanied by tobacco and eucalyptus flavors. Elegant and firm, with a slightly dry finish. Drink now through 2020. 700 cases imported.
