About this wine
Compared to the Tre Stelle, the 2014 Barbaresco Rio Sordo seems to have a slightly riper quality of fruit. The difference is minimal but it makes sense given that the heat during the 2014 vintage all came toward the very end of the growing season. This beautiful wine is bold and slightly more robust with dark cherry and red currant. It is also more marked in terms of tannins and structure.
A lively version, displaying cherry, plum, licorice, spice and subtle tar flavors. Taut and balanced, exuding a mineral element on the long finish. Really elegant overall. Best from 2021 through 2035.
The 2014 Barbaresco Rio Sordo is terrific. Rich and enveloping in the glass, the 2014 is an exquisitely balanced, harmonious wine. A host of dark-fleshed stone fruit and balsamic notes open up in the glass. The 2014 offers notable textural depth and intensity while retaining a super-classic, mid-weight sense of structure. The persistent, nuanced finish only adds to the wine's considerable appeal. This is one of the finest wines I have tasted from Cascina delle Rose in some time.
