Due to the rather difficult year, the qualitative range of the 2014 Barbaresco is somewhat wider than usual. Nebbiolo, from which Barbaresco can only be made, can produce unique, fascinating and even overwhelming wines, but under adverse conditions it can also be extraordinarily brittle and uncharming. The current vintage exemplifies both: green, rough, uncharming wines on the one hand, highly refined, complex masterpieces where the challenges of the vintage were met.

There is something unique about first-class Barbaresco. Nowhere else in the world do wines with similar alcohol levels have this delicacy and elegance combined with beguilingly noble fruit and powerful yet silky tannins. Once you have tasted such beauty, you will rarely be able to put it down.

We have tasted around 120 wines for this BEST OF of which we present to you the best, as always, in a handy PDF presentation. To see all the Barbaresco tasted this year, go to here.
