Wine Advocate #192. Dec 2010. Reviewer : Antonio Galloni. The 2007 Barbaresco Coste Rubin is one of the finest versions of this wine I can remember tasting. Sweet perfumed cherries, roses and flowers of all sorts emerge from this graceful, delicate Barbaresco. The Coste Rubin possesses dazzling inner perfume, silky tannins and exceptional overall balance. This is hard to resist today but should also develop beautifully over the next few years. The 2007 is a huge step away from the massively concentrated wines of the past. The Coste Rubin shut down quickly in the glass and may be headed for a period of dormancy. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.
