Ruby red in color with light garnet highlights. Great finesse on the nose, harmonious and complex. Sensations of ripe red fruit and violet, with spicy undertones. Enveloping tannins, great elegance, sapidity and persistence on the palate. Pair with fresh pasta with light sauces or better Langhe white truffle, rabbit stew and roasted white meat, veil raw tartare, soft cheeses.

Compelling aromas of fragrant blue flower, red berry, crushed herb, new leather and tilled earth shape the nose. On the savory, full-bodied palate, taut, fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity frame flavors of ripe Marasca cherry, raspberry compote, licorice and tobacco. It's young but already boasts a fantastic combination of elegance and structure. Drink 2022-2030.

A top note of mint augments the cherry, strawberry, eucalyptus and tar flavors in this austere red. Assertive tannins gird the finish, yet this remains long and finds equilibrium in the end. Best from 2023 through 2035. 150 cases imported.

Deceptively medium in body, the 2015 Barbaresco Bordini is powerful and brooding in this vintage, with quite a bit of depth and substance backing up the dark fruit, smoke, game and leather flavors. Readers should give the 2015 at least a few years in bottle to come around. I expect the wine will always remain on the brooding, virile earthy side of things.

The 2015 Barbaresco Bordini is a bit too hot and jammy for my tastes. Nebbiolo is such a delicate grape, and it has a very hard time adjusting to a scorching hot summer season such as 2015. The bouquet here is soft and immediate with dried strawberry and blackberry confit. The wine is both powerful and generous in personality (with 14.5% alcohol). The young tannins are loosely knit and grainy in texture. Some 9,900 bottles were made.
