Massimo Rattalino Quarantadue42 Barbaresco DOCG 2015
- Textured, savoury
Barbaresco is widely regarded as more approachable than it’s brash, ballsy sibling, Barolo. There’s still acid and tannin to spare here, but it’s softly aromatic and harmoniously put together. The complexity and depth of flavour is second to none, with heady aromas of roses and violets, alongside sweet, exotic spices and sprinkling of dusty cocoa. It’s that bit more versatile than Barolo, I find, and equally suited to a big, rich stew as it is to more delicate game and truffle dishes. It’ll age miraculously well, though there’s no need for Barolo’s 20-odd years before opening. This one is absolutely delightful now after a spin in the decanter, but will sit happily in the cellar for well over a decade.
“This is the business! Sweet ripe cherry, raspberry and rose petal perfume, sleek attack, close-grained and powerful tannins, lovely energy and lots of tension. Succulent texture too. Stunning wine.”
