Lovely nose of rose petals smoky vanilla, sweet dried tobacco leaf, plum and cake spice flavours. Tannins are firm and chewy and there is great acidity for food on this Barbaresco. Would benefit from three or more years in cellar. Pair with a well-marbled beef steak.

Barbaresco food pairings: roast boar, tourtière, rich pork roast.

Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Barbaresco's offer great value in a complex yet very approachable style even at a young age thanks to softer tannins and earlier drinking windows than many Barolos - the King of Italian wines and the neighbour of the impressive Barbaresco wines that are all produced with the Nebbiolo grape, yet show-up in a different style. Think of Barbaresco as the wine you enjoy the first decade while your Barolo is cellaring to start enjoying in the second decade of its life.

Enrico Serafino was founded in 1878, now 141 years later they're going strong producing exceptional wines with their 2015 Barbaresco being a fine example! Cherry, spice cake, rose, leather, tar, and anise on the nose and palate. Great structure, the fresh acidity and soft integrated tannins make this wine perfect for enjoing with rich pasta dishes with aromatic truffles, soft cheese, or fireside with good company. An outstanding Barbaresco that's ready to enjoy now yet will show beautifully over the next decade. Tasted December 2019. 93 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Ripe and jammy nose with prominent cherry notes followed by accents of floral and spice. Typical high acid and grippy tannins. A little light in expression on the palate. Perhaps give this one a few more years to evolve and visit in the early 2020s with braised short ribs or veal chops.
From the Piedmont wine region, Enrico Serafino 2015 is a vibrant, medium-plus-bodied Barbaresco with smoky black cherry aromas on the nose, earthy, licorice, red plum, dried sweet tobacco, dried florals and violets on the palate. Finishes smoky with vanilla spice and great acidity for food. Needs some time in cellar. Enjoy in 2022. - Community Wine Reviews
