Pelissero Barbaresco Vanotu 1996


SKU 14574


It has an intense ruby red color and fruity notes of raspberries and cherries, harmoniously combined with soft wooden sensations like that of vanilla. Velvety, ample and embracing with persistent but sweet tannins on the mouth. The polyphenolic structure of Nebbiolo and the amount of tannic acid guarantee long aging.

Wine SpectatorA mature red, featuring more forest floor and woodsy notes than fruit, leaning toward tar on the palate. This is also lean and driven by high acidity that keeps it taut. Astringent finish. Drink now through 2015.

Wine AdvocateThis mainstream Barbaresco is a competent, well-made effort. The 1996 Barbaresco Vanotu reveals a stemmy, vegetal character, in addition to a lean, tannic, hard finish. I have reservations about it ever achieving full harmony.

Robert Parker, August 1999
