2014 Barbaresco Ovello DOCG, Cascina Morassino, Piemonte
A registered single vineyard Barbaresco of ruby red colour with strong garnet/orange hues. The nose is complex and intense. Violets, cherries, licorice, anise, oriental spices with a lightly toasted note. The palate is austere although smoothened by elegant tannins, thanks to the extensive age of the vines. A lengthy finish renders this wine pleasant and enjoyable now.
