Region: Italy
Price: $82.99
94 Wine Spectator
This is excellent. Superfruity on the nose with loads of raspberry and strawberry character. New wood undertones. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long finish. Fresh and powerful. Almost up to the 2000 in quality.
Best after '09.
93 Antonio Gallloni - Wine Advocate
The 2003 Barbaresco Masseria, from a vineyard in the Bricco di Neive sub-section of Neive, is one of the vintage’s successes. A fairly dark ruby, it opens with elegant notes of sweet toasted oak, cherries in liqueur, and spices. It is rich and expansive on the palate, where it offers plenty of fruit with notable concentration, purity and depth in a sleek, finessed style. The tannins are quite present today, but a few years of cellaring should bring the wine into balance.
Anticipated maturity: '08 - '18.
