Ca Rome Marengo Barbaresco, 1995
This is a beautifully mature Barbaresco. It's similar to the last bottle I had and does not show signs of decline. The medium light orangeish color is what I expect from a Piedmont Nebbiolo. Scents of cherries, red berries and roses are there from the beginning--subtle charm. Now some anise/licorice tones. Same on the palate; flavors that dance; not powerful but persistent and with well focused Nebbiolo fruit.
