Sourced from one of the most renowned and venerated wine-growing districts in the world. Low yields per vine are required to obtain good sugar levels, intense color, and the fullest flavor extraction. Traditional fermentation is followed by malolactic fermentation and then laid to rest for 4 years of aging (hence the Riserva moniker; non-Riserva Barbaresco requires 2 years). From the best south-facing slopes in Barbaresco and with a good bit of barrel and bottle aging, Lot 592 is more approachable than Lot 593 Barolo but every bit as exquisite, and from a top-rated vintage, too (2006 95 rating, Wine Advocate).
Recommend decanting for about an hour. Very rich, but the more it aerates the better it becomes.
Nebbiolo finds its most dazzling expression
From my wine Atlas : "Tannic wines that need to age, but ones in which the tannins merely frames a stunning array of haunting flavors" . . . . . "What unites them is the racy cut of their tannins, freshening rather than overwhelming the palate."
New horizon for me
I've always been a bit intimidated by Italian wines. There seems to be so many different appellations and varietals and so much mediocre wine that I have avoided trying many, much less collecting them. Then I tried this barbaresco and its cousin, the barolo. I am now anxious to fine more nebbiolo based wines to try. They are both worth every penny I spent on them. Thank you, Mr. Hughes.
Lovely garnet with red bricking throught.
Tart cherry/rhubarb pie and red apple skin on the nose.
Fresh pepper, tart cherry and rose petal infused leather with a hint of smoke. Sweet berry acidity and energetic tannins that combine for a wonderful mouth feel.
There is a wonderful lingering flavor on the tongue, which is like a plumb infused cigar cedar, that hangs around and entices you to take another sip(or gulp).
A nice treat
A good rich wine that needs aging . A nice treat that is different from my usual experience
Great piemonte red
Opened the first of six bottles Lot 592 Barbaresco Riserva.
What a great Nebbiolo! I have had a few Barolos at 2-3x the price that were less than the equal to this wine.
Lot 592 is ready to be enjoyed now but probably has an extended maturity.

Strong after Decanting
Definitely needs at least an hour of decanting. Nose opens up to rose petal, tar, and orange peel. Full bodied for a barbaresco. Gentle tannins but beautifully balanced. Would definitely buy again!
Long decant revealed a fantastic nose - rose, tobacco and layers of complexity
Very tanic and stood up well to a rich pasta dish
Opened up with the deep aromas you look for from an Italian wine.
