Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco 1996

86 points

Barbaresco, Piedmont, Italy. 13.5%

Bought off retail shelves in 2007 which explains the excessive oxidation for a 12 year old wine.  But the fruit is still there, sweet and slightly caramel, perhaps due to the oxidation.  Grapey acidity keeps the wine alive, very much an Italian (and Nebbiolo) character.

Not worth the money, but interesting.
