Juststarted a WE selection Barbaresco kit, anyone care to comment on their finished and aged one? For those who have done both, how does this compare to Valpolicella?

This was my first kit!! I bottled towards the end of December, so I have not tasted it yet. I did bottle about six half bottles so I could taste at the 3 month, 6 month, and 9 month out. I have tasted this kit (friends) and it was outstanding!! Once again, I would give it a year in the bottle!!


Goodluck!

It was my third kit, and has now been aging for about seven months. It has a lighter body than I expected, and doesn't really taste like a Barbaresco to me, but will probably be a pretty good house wine. I don't hold out hopes for anything extraordinary.

I started a batch a while ago. I should bottle it next week or the week after.
Looks good in the carboy!

Thanks to those who gave feedback, I guess not many people here have done this kit. I guess we will find out what they are missing. I'll be sure to give feedback.

Racked and stabalized the Barberesco, now going to bulk age. It,s a beautiful dark purple, and tastes very good already.
