This wine has now sold out. To register your interest please contact us at email@example.com and we will notify you when it is back in stock.
Bright garnet with strong brickish red rim. Utterly fragrant even though there is still plenty of sweet oak vanillin in evidence. The oak is more noticeable on the palate but even here the fragrant red fruit fills the mouth with fresh scent more than sweetness. Then there's also a dark liquorice note which adds depth and power. Firm, smooth, dry tannins. Already complex but so much more to come. Lovely label too - feather on black background. Drink between 2010-2016

The 2004 Barbaresco Maria Adelaide is a selection of the best fruit across all of the estate's various parcels. It is also the richest and most powerful of these Barbarescos. Dark red cherry, plum, chocolate, smoke, spice and leather are all fused together. The Maria Adelaide has the stuffing to stand up all of the new oak, but it still bears those signatures. This is another wine that was more impressive when it was first released than it is now. Drink between 2016-2022
