Barbaresco, Sori San Lorenzo, 2007

Equiv. £325.00 per bottle

Tasting Note:

Aged for a year in large french oak cask and a year in smaller barriques, a third new . Less heady and immediate than the Costa Russi and less easy going initially but this should end up being an even more interesting wine. Initially muscular and robust, perhaps even a little austere, in a good way, gradually unveiling tight knit flavours of bramble, sloe, fresh black currant and morello cherries, strong bitter sweet cocoa and deep cooling mineral elements too. Despite its backbone there is nonetheless evidence of the smooth, appealing character of the vintage, finishing more elegant than it starts. Stunning.
