Paitin Barbaresco Sori Paitin 2014
Intense aromas and flavors of pure cherry, raspberry and flowers introduce this silky, delicate red, which is firmly structured, with dusty, assertive tannins. Notes of tobacco and mineral are woven into the long, detailed aftertaste. Best from 2021 through 2033. 1,200 cases made.
This opens with moist underbrush, dried herb and light cellar-floor aromas. The lean, racy palate shows Marasca cherry and a rather green note of powdered sage. Bracing tannins clench the abrupt finish.
