Darkly alluring, the 2021 Barco Reale di Carmignano opens with a blend of dusty violet and lavender complementing crushed blackberries. Luxuriously round and enveloping, it soothes with brisk acidity and juicy wild berry fruits. The 2021 leaves a chalky sensation, tapering off with medium length—potent yet crisp.
