(Luca Currado referred to this wine as his "Barbarolo" and actually served it after the 2004 Villero Riserva): Good full red. Slightly liqueur-like aromas of raspberry, minerals and menthol. Compellingly dense, sweet and deep, with a saline minerality contributing to the wine’s chewy texture. The explosive, spicy, resonating finish features strong, horizontal tannins and compelling sappiness. More elegant than Vietti’s Barolos but nonetheless hugely rich for Barbaresco.

The 2007 Barbaresco Masseria flows gracefully from the glass with fabulous aromas of crushed flowers, berries, spices and minerals. It is a wonderfully perfumed, elegant Barbaresco of the highest level. Supple and open today, it promises to drink well to age twenty, if not significantly longer. Hints of the profound 1989 Barolo Rocche ” one of the all time greats here ” lingers on the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027. Importer: Dalla Terra, Napa, CA; tel. (707) 259-5405
