We’ve headed off for a sneaky week in North Devon, near the sea. After a sunny day spent exploring with dog and wife, including a bit of dog-goes-crazy-on-beach, what better way to unwind than with a glass of barbaresco?
This has been open since yesterday evening, when we arrived, and is now very enjoyable. A pretty ruby colour with a touch of brick towards the edges. Elegant nose with a little bit of leather. Soft tannins and good to drink now as it’s from 2014.
This is my second and last bottle of this and I’d suggest Bruno Rocca’s Rabaja is well worth looking out for if there’s some in the 2016 offering and you are feeling a little bit spendy.
The weekend looks like being good and sunny but don’t worry, I’ve come armed with a 2010 Riesling by Dirler-Cade (and maybe one or two other treats…).
