Produttori del 2012 Barbaresco DOCG (Piedmont, Italy), $25.49-$32.99, 92+ points, poured a bright orange/red at the glass edge and broad clear wine ring, while shading ruby at the core.
The aromas were a bit subtle, but lovely roses, sandalwood, a whisper of vanilla, and red cherry notes were excellent.
Barely medium-bodied with mouth-watering acidity and grainy firm tannins carried a plethora of palate pleasing cherry notes, orange pekoe tea, plum, truffle, and cola flavors.
Finished on a vigorous gestalt of acids, spices, tannins, and a 14% alcohol.
Paired perfectly with my spice-rubbed Angus Porterhouse steak.
Such a special wine for about $25.
