Description

Leoparodi Barbaresco Riserva 2008

Leoparodi Barbaresco Riserva has colour of garnet with a tinge of orange. It has fine and complex nose aromas of fresh strawberries and cherries woven with spices and florals. A vibrant mouth with notes of tobacco, leather, cacao, coffee and licorice. This extremely elegant and beautiful bouquet has finesse yet very smooth tannins. The finish is persistent and clean. This outstanding bottle is from old vines from over 55 years. If elegance is the common feature for Leoparodi, then Barbaresco Riserva is the best representative.

100% Nebbiolo from old vineyards over the age of 55 years with an altitude of 380 above sea level. The orientation is South / South-West facing and the soil is rich in lime, clay and grey-bluish marl. The grapes are manually harvested.

The wines are all the local produce of the Langhe, a land where the vineyards are the distinctive feature of a landscape now declared humankind heritage and the rolling hills remind us of sea waves. The territory is unique all over the world for both its shape and climate and the land is loved and passionately cared about in preserving the genuineness of the produce.

This lovely Barbaresco is elegant and refined with pretty aromas of fresh strawberries and cherries woven together with spices, dried florals, and even some wet stones. On the palate this is medium-bodied with a fine, silky texture and lovely minerality at it core. It continues to impress all the way through the finish where it leaves behind pretty red fruits and wet stony minerals. Showing excellent right now.

    πŸ‘ Light garner, deep.
    πŸ‘ƒ Cherry πŸ’, plum, mushroom, some leather
    πŸ‘… Acidic πŸ…, tannic, clear structure, bold!

    Good time to drink the Riserva DOCG 2008. Can be rather boring by itself. Paired extremely well with some Putien πŸ–πŸš Chinese food.
