A big, full-bodied Barbaresco made in a style similar to how Vietti makes their single-vineyard Barolos. If you like Vietti Barolos, you’re going to love their Masseria Barbaresco — at less than half the price.

I tasted this 2011 Masseria in Castiglione Falletto last fall, and was impressed with its openness even today. Bright, ripe red cherries, rich herbal notes with mint, tobacco, a touch of rose and hints of vanilla & nutmeg (this spent 6 months in French barrique).

I’d pair this gem with venison steaks grilled rare, a rich beef stew, beef tartare, or have simply with some strong, hard cheeses.
