The 2016 Barbaresco Cavanna is bold, punchy and full of character. I suppose technically, the Cavanna is a bit rustic, but there is just so much personality in the glass that I am willing to look past some of the more angular contours. Readers will find a deep, vibrant, old-school Barbaresco that offers a good bit of intensity as well as brawn. A burst of red berry fruit, iron, cedar, smoke and anise punctuates the substantial, super-expressive finish. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, October 2020)

Nose is average. Tar, roses, pretty balanced and serene. Juicy. Good fruit. Long. Not bad.

Late posting. Light fruit with nice powerful mouth searing tannin. Perfect for weeknight pizza. Parcelle snag.
