About

94

"Bright and balanced, this has an intriguing balsamic fragrance of menthol and eucalyptus layered with black cherry, leather and sandalwood. The fresh, delineated palate offers wild cherry, crushed raspberry, white pepper, mint and balsamic notes alongside supple tannins that give a smooth texture. Drink through 2025."

91 Wine Spectator

"Bursting with cherry and strawberry fruit, accented by floral, tar and spice notes, this red is fresh, elegant and structured. Complex overall, with ample grip from the dusty tannins and a lingering fruit finish. Best from 2017 through 2028."

90 Monica Larner - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The Punset 2010 Barbaresco Basarin opens to a light ruby color with pretty transparency and medium-bodied elegance. The Basarin cru delivers pronounced aromas and silky tannins and you get both of those things here. The bouquet opens to licorice, tar and crème de cassis. There is a point of sour bitterness on the close."
