Product Info

WINEMAKER'S NOTE:

Vignesparse” is sourced from vineyards in the village of Neive, one of the three anchor towns of the Barbaresco production zone, where Adriana Marzi and Roberto Bruno have hand-crafted a small range of wines since they founded Cantina del Glicine in 1980. This place is a jewel box, centered around a deep, vaulted wine cave that dates to the 16th century, and this wine is another gem to add to the growing list of un-missable ’15s from Piedmont. It’s a very silky, “Burgundian” expression of Barbaresco, medium to medium-plus in body, skewing toward the ripe end of the Barbaresco spectrum but nicely balanced by the more floral/savory notes. After 30-60 minutes open, its taut structure softens a bit to lend it a silkier feel on the palate, but it’s clear this wine still has more evolution ahead of it—10 years at least.
