The 2006 vintage has been described as a special year, comparable to 1999. The wines were tannic and powerful, with a depth of flavor ranging from dense fruit to more savory notes.
Roberto Sarotto's Barbaresco Riserva DOCG 2006 is a wine that embodies the strength and structure of such a special vintage. Produced from Nebbiolo grapes and matured for four years in large Slavonian oak barrels, this wine is an oenological masterpiece. After aging in wood, the wine was stored in steel until its recent bottling, a process that imparts unparalleled freshness. On the nose, notes of cherries and spices emerge, followed by hints of tannins and a depth of flavor ranging from dense fruit to more savory notes. In the mouth, the wine is warm and juicy, with well-balanced tannins refined by time. The structure is harmonious, with a perfect balance of acidity, minerality, and body. Bottled with DIAM corks to ensure impeccable sealing, this wine is a true treasure for wine enthusiasts.
