Sweet red cherries, mint, kirsch, autumn leaves meld together in the 2012 Barbaresco Ovello Vigna Loreto. Silky, fragrant and finessed, the 2012 is quite racy because of its ripeness, which also helps soften some of the harder edges that are often found in Ovello. This is a very pretty Barbaresco from Albino Rocca.

This wine opens with a lovely fragrance of violet, iris, wild berry, licorice and a whiff of leather. The smooth palate doles out ripe wild cherry, cinnamon, clove, white pepper, tobacco and anise. It’s impeccably balanced, with glossy tannins and fresh acidity. Already drinking beautifully, it will also age well for several years.

Attractive aromas of dried strawberry, balsamic and cedar follow through to a full body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. Drink now or hold.
