1997 Vietti Masseria Barbaresco
Leather, mild black licorice, tobacco, saddle soap, dried herbs and cherries, soft floral notes. Tar and roses? Possibly, if you close your eyes and dial up the imagination. Nice balance. The wood has done it’s job and fully receded. The fruit is reddish and fairly tertiary with glimpses of youth. Tannins gently rub the whole way through the attack to the finish. Moderate intensity throughout. Blind you could be fooled in to thinking it might be a Burg except for the tannic persistence. You definitely want to stand this up and settle the fines. Seems to be peaking. Nice showing for a 23 year old.
