Barbaresco 2017/18 De Forville

Barbaresco 2017/18 De Forville

ITALY

Nebbiolo takes it name from 'nebbia', the fog cloaking the hills of Piedmont around harvest time. The village of Barbaresco lies only a little to the north-east of Barolo in Piedmont and produces wines of a similar style and quality. A big, elegant wine of pale colour. Dark cherries and leather with earthy hints, and a rose perfume, a charming, well integrated wine with a long finish. Muscular tannins give the wine a solid backbone. Try this with a fillet steak with mushrooms. The wine will nicely echo the earthy notes of the mushrooms.

2017 nicely balanced in 2021 still young but primary fruit, dark berries, chocolate, firm tannins with drying finish. Impressed. A very good Barbaresco for the price.

This 2012 vintage is lighter than the 2010 but i feel it is a more balanced and complete wine for it. The freshness and purity of the fruit really does jump out of the glass. It has a pretty nose of rose petals and red fruits. Although this is the same grape (nebbiola) as Barolo

For me, perfect balance of tannin, woody smells and red berry flavours. Isnt as deep as some but not too light either.   Must be left to rest out of the bottle as a strong sour smell which fades rapidly if left to air.   The wine itself is a dark red colour that is very smooth to drink

Violet and spirit cherries nose, with good intensity and length. Grippy tannins, medium acidity, black fruits, slightly medicinal palate. Very good at this price, needs time - might buy more for cellaring.

Disappointedly acidic -  Dry as sandpaper but without the balancing fruit to make it palatable.
