1990 Bruno Giacosa, Barberesco Santo Stefano di Nieve Riserva

A far more muscular wine compared to the regular Barbaresco Riserva. The camphor notes oozing out of the glass with mandarin peel, spices, cherry perfumes and red devils fruit. The taste is at first a bit peppery with harsh tannin feeling. Then the food was served – wow what a transformation. The wine swirls the tagliatelle perfect around the mouth and the intense mushrooms and parmesan flavours integrates perfectly with the wine, which show how well build and concentrated it is.
