"Camphor, rose and woodland berry aromas shape the nose on this structured red. The firm, full-bodied palate delivers juicy cherry, crushed raspberry and licorice alongside tight, noble tannins and vibrant acidity. It has incredible structure and a compelling purity of fruit. Give it time to fully develop. Drink 2022–2034."

"The 2014 Barbaresco Albesani is frankly on another level relative to the other Barbarescos Luca Roagna has recently added to his range. Explosive in its aromatic intensity and ample on the palate, the Albesani will leave readers who enjoy classically built wines weak at the knees. Everything that makes Nebbiolo so alluring comes through in this stunning Barbaresco. Freshly cut flowers, mint, chalk and sweet red cherries all race through this delicious and very promising Barbaresco. This is just a great expression of Nebbiolo."

"Sleek and linear, sporting cherry, eucalyptus, licorice, iron and tea flavors. Intense, but a tad more flesh would buffer the chewy tannins. Long and vibrant on the finish. Best from 2023 through 2040. 230 cases made. -BS"
