2020 Paitin, Barbaresco DOCG, Faset (RT94) While similar in hue to the 2019 Faset, here the bouquet shows a richer, riper expression of Nebbiolo. Notes of dark red cherry, damson plum, hints of crisp forest floor and umami punctuated with a decided minerality lead the charge. The palate is rich with layers of ripe fruit, a mouth enveloping texture and delicious, food friendly acidity and a soft, seductive finish. I prefer the 2019 Faset, but it may just be the mood the wine is in currently. Cellar evolution can be a deceptive game. 3034 bottles produced, another wine to watch over the coming years.
