Cigliuti's 2014 Barbaresco Vie Erte is all class. A wine of nuance and translucent beauty, the 2014 has a lot to offer. The flavors are bright, precise and finely sculpted, with veins of supporting tannin and lively acidity that give the wine energy. I imagine the 2014 will appeal most to readers with classically-leaning palates and those who can be patient, as the wine will need at least a few years to unwind. Bright red stone fruit, chalk, mint, white pepper and expressive floral notes linger on the persistent, pointed finish. The 2014 is a fabulous Vie Erte.
