Villadoria Barbaresco 2012
A traditional Barbaresco, it is garnet red in colour with ruby highlights, and has an ethereal nose with rose and violet, red fruit jam, raspberry and also vanilla, nutmeg, white pepper and aniseed aromas. It is full-bodied in the mouth, with tannins which never predominate, and is balanced and long lasting. Food pairings: Pasta dishes with meat sauces, red meat based, braised dishes and game, cheeses including matured cheeses.
Wine EnthusiastThis offers aromas and flavors of red raspberry, blue flowers, weedy underbrush and a whiff of dried sage. It's rather simple and already accessible.
