Giuseppe Cortese Barbaresco 2020

Get to know: Giuseppe Cortese Barbaresco 

Tasting Note

A “classic” selection of Barbaresco D.O.C.G., grown in some parcels of the Rabajà and Trifolera vineyards. The nose has rose and red cherry, leather and an earthiness. The palate is rich with crisp acidity and great minerality. Flavours of red cherry, strawberry raspberry, dried rose petals, crushed herbs with a firm tannic finish. One to leave in a decanter to relax for a couple of hours if you're enjoying now. Or cellar for another 5-10 years.

Try this with game birds.
