Barbera, Larigi Langhe, 2018

10 cases, 2 bottles
£46.67 per bottle

Tasting Note:

Classy, easy to love Larigi. The oak is more in the background than usual, even at this young stage. Really sensual and very open. The palate is characterised by wonderful ripe, really juicy fruit with a sensual, tactile feel to it. A fine-ground touch of salt adds spark and interest to the raspberry and tayberry fruits. Beautifully composed. A stunning 65-year-old, south-facing Barbera parcel sitting at the top of the Arborina vineyard. Aged for 18 months in new oak barriques. 3000 bottles a year are made.
