1997 Ceretto Barbaresco Bricco Asili, Piemonte, Italy

With short notice I decided to have a red wine for dinner. Taken directly from the wine cabinet and decanted for two hours. Instantly the wine made me smile. The red fruit surrounds the wines character with, violets, cherries, herbs and a dried note of spices and leather. The fruit is fresh and in it’s prime drinking window with elegant brushes of acidity attack with a cherry and vanilla closing. (94)

Glass: Riedel Sommelier Burgundy Grand Cru.
