Product Info


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.
