The 1999 vintage was one of the best for Barbaresco wines. It was a vintage that offered wines with great character and structure. Many producers compared the 1999 vintage to the 2001 vintage, pointing out that both were fantastic, but the 1999 showed a more powerful character.
The Barbaresco Riserva DOCG 1999 by Roberto Sarotto encapsulates the essence of a unique vintage. This Riserva was aged for 4 years in large Slavonian oak barrels and subsequently stored in steel until its very recent bottling, making it a one-of-a-kind specimen. On the nose, ethereal notes of red fruits and violet are followed by subtle hints of leather and tobacco. In the mouth, the wine is warm and juicy, with well-balanced tannins refined over time, and a balanced structure between acidity and sapidity. The late bottling gives it a unique freshness, achievable only with this production method. Bottled with DIAM corks to ensure impeccable sealing. This wine is ideal for special occasions, perhaps paired with red meat dishes or aged cheeses.
