2018 Barbaresco Ovello DOCG

Case of 12 bottles

Varietals: 100% Nebbiolo

Vinification/Ageing: 24 Months in 25hl French Oak

Alcohol: 15%

Description: 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. 

Interesting Note: This wine is made from a vineyard shared with the famed Gaja – perhaps one of the most famous producers in all of Barbaresco.

93 Points, Decanter: "From the cooler Ovello in the cool 2018 vintage, this classic Barbaresco is highlighted by developed aromas of smoke, medicinal herbs, violet and earthy minerality. A bony style with firm tannins prevails on the palate, showing some austerity with a blood orange flavour and savoury aftertaste with a touch of mint. Drinking Window 2021 - 2035"
