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).
Strong alcohol presence
I decanted this bottle for three hours to a beneficial result. I generally like Barbaresco wines. This wine was rich, intense, with a pungent alcohol content. The fruit was mature, dark, with integrated tannins. It is a big powerful wine that I respect but did not fully enjoy. My girlfriend loved it.
Was waiting to try!
I am in general a Cab drinker so when I purchased this I was a bit hesitant to try it! So on the wine rack it sat. Opened today and decanted for 2 1/2 hours per recommendations...... well I have to say, this is delicious! Not familiar with Italian wines at all, but will surely buy more in the future!
Expensive, but worth it!
This wine was quite impressive, especially after decanting for an hour. I love a really good Italian wine, and we all raved about this one.
This is the first time I've tried a Barbaresco, and I love it! I'm drinking it while watching the Kentucky Derby races with my family. Perfect combination!
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.
