Giacosa Fratelli 2017 Basarin Vigna Gianmatè (Barbaresco)

Aged in barriques, this opens with aromas of scorched earth, blue flowers and French oak along with a whiff of burnt rubber. Reflecting the nose, the firm palate offers stewed prune, vanilla and coffee bean framed in close-grained, astringent tannins that leave a firm, mouthdrying close. Despite the assertive tannins, drink sooner rather than later to capture the remaining fruit. Kerin O’Keefe
