Orlando Abrigo - Barbaresco DOCG Montersino 2011
James Suckling: 93
Ruby-red, with a rich, complex bouquet hinting at vanilla and red fruit, together with sweet and spicy elements resulting from the wood. Smooth at first on the palate, the big tannins then make it slightly harder, with excellent ageing potential.
Winemaking: Soft pressing of the grapes, followed by maceration on the skins for 10 - 15 days at a maximum temperature of 30°C. The wine is then drawn off and racked into small barrels (20% new), where it matures for 12-15 months. The wine is bottled without filtration.
Store lying down in cool surroundings.
