La Ganghija 2016 (Italy: Piedmont)

Name La Ganghija 2016
Varietal Barbaresco (DOcg)
Region Italy: Piedmont
Notes "Enzo Rapalino from Treiso triumphed with his 2015 at the Decanter World Wine Awards, and the 2016, which is aged in barriques as well as large casks, is of comparable quality. It's very ripe on the nose but without jamminess, displaying vibrant cherry and raspberry aromas. The attack is fresh and lively, and the mid-palate is concentrated with ripe tannins and acidity. It's animated and zesty, with real flair, energy and length. Should age well, but accessible young. Drinking Window 2020 - 2035," (Decanter Magazine)
