This is a beautiful wine, and a remarkable example of Barbaresco, elegance, and power is balanced beautifully. The steep Ovello vineyard overlooks the hilltop hamlet of Barbaresco and beautifully trellised countryside. A vineyard that was previously owned by Gaja, this Barbaresco is offering outstanding quality at a fraction of the price of those made by its former owner.

2016 Ovello is an outstanding vintage, massive wine of great structure. A deeply perfumed nose, a firm dryness on the palate and it finishes with great elegance and length.

"Menthol, new leather, blue flower, and sage aromas lead this wine's nose, along with a whiff of toast. Taut and savory, it offers red berry, star anise, clove and a bit of tobacco on the palate. Youthfully assertive, fine-grained tannins and bright acidity lend structure."
