La Ca’ Nova, Barbaresco Montestefano 1995

Dario Rocca Barbaresco Montestefano 1995

Medium-full red color; dusty hue of maturity at the rim.  Warm, soft nose: red cherry, red curry, marjoram, asphalt.  Sappy mid-weight palate.  Some tannin.  Decent acidity.  A laid-back Montestafano.  No lack of style but we could have used a little more grip.  A bit one-dimensional, a bit forward. Good though.  These can be finished up over the next couple years.  Now – 2015.
