Wine Details

Still dark in the glass and just starting to show a little orange bricking at the edge, the nose here is lovely with the classic Nebbiolo amalgam, tar and roses, enveloped in a haze of cherry cigar smoke. The chalky tannins reveal more fruit here than its Barolo counterpart (Lot 593), which is right given their age difference. Wonderfully pure and singing nicely now, this wine will continue to age gracefully for another 10-20 years.

Cam Confidential

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).

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.

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.

This is my first try at drinking Barbaresco. I was impressed

Decanted for an hour and a half prior to serving. This is a really pretty expression of aged barbaresco. Lighter in weight but still preserving some richness. Notes of black tea, tar, leather, classic rose petal with a little bit of cinnamon and strawberry on both the palate and nose. Beautiful, long finish with moderate-soft tannins. My only gripe is that it started falling flat pretty fast at the 2.5 hour mark. Otherwise, it's a great wine especially for the price. It's pretty hard to find a Barbaresco this old in your local wine shop, so the convenience of finding one online is perfect! I Will definitely be buying some more!

Nice example of classic Barbaresco

Nice example of a Barbaresco. This is got great color and smoothness - largely due to its age. I tend to go for Cabs that are rich and deep, where this is far more subtle and generally a lighter wine. Got 3 bottles ordering another 3 to lay up.
