Clear Ruby. Dusty, licorice, ripe sweet red cherry, lipstick nose. A classically structured blast of red fruit acid and tannic grip. So much electric fruit that this a pleasure to drink right now. Though I think this will hit prime in 15 years. 9.4+ now. Will only get better.

Lifted aromas of rose water, savory mushroom, fresh and juicy raspberry and strawberry, prune, clove, stem, spearmint, and citrus oil the nose. Uber tart tomato, sour cherry, leather, tar, and mint on the palate. High acidity, long finish. Tight tannins.

Not my favorite vintage. Had a lot more power than the two previous vintages that were more easy drinking. This one will go on for a long time. SM

My first words when tasting this wine, spat out almost along with the liquid in my mouth, were ‘holy shit’. For various reasons: the incredible follow-on from what was a very intoxicating nose; the explosion of searingly dry acidity and tannin on the palate; and, ultimately, the tremendous quality (and value) of this wine. Locked and loaded with tart cherry, strawberry compote, umami, menthol, violet and tar, this is a profoundly complex Barbaresco built for the long haul. It’s far too young now - almost undrinkably so (almost..) even after a five hour decant - but everything’s there. The finish, though it drags every last vestige of moisture from your mouth with it, is delightfully long. I shan’t touch any more of these for at least another five years, but can’t wait to do so.

16s are pretty. $40 for killer Barbaresco still remains one of the top values in the wine world. Love PdB.

The 2016 Barbaresco is a stunning wine with tremendous richness for this bottling. Ample, deep and powerful, the 2016 exudes pedigree and class from start to finish. I can't remember a straight Barbaresco here with this much fruit density and unctuous richness, and yet there is more than enough tannin and overall structure to give the wine its classically leaning feel. A blast of sweet red cherry fruit, tobacco, menthol licorice and smoke hits the potent finish. What a wine! (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, November 2019)

Had 2 of these right after release and now first one after about a year in between. This is still young, primary and tight just as you expect but the density of fruit, pedigree and power is more evident. Nice nose full of cherry, raspberry and strawberry complemented by wiff of smoke. On palate the tannins and acidity is prominent but in line with the fruit. This is enjoyable with food (had this with osso buco) and best as pop and pour. On 2nd day it is more turned itself. Remains to be seen if this closes down completely in near fjture or not. But definitely worth all the praise from the press. I need to add few mafs to my stash for the long haul
