Prunotto Pian Romualdo Barbera d'Alba 2017

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

An initial whack of wood hits the nose, just too oaky and raw. Once you get past that there is a honeycomb like floralish aroma here, dominated by violets layered atop black currant, and jammy black fruit on the nose with hint of fresh leather and shoe polish. On the palate the fruit does shine through, framed by sweet toasty oak flavors, tart black plum and black berry pop on the palate and while this is arguably better than the standard version it's less fun to drink. The finish is a bit short, rather rich with fruit but the sweetness of the wood pops quickly then fades leaving light fruit and acid to dissipate fairly quickly. 87pts

Great Italian red. Nice and smooth. Not much body, but still a very enjoyable bottle. $15.99 WC

Intensives Purpurrot mit rubinroten Reflexen. In der Nase frisch, Brombeeren, Cassis, elegantes Holz und Weichselkirschen. Im Gaumen sehr saftig, mit präsenter Säure, zeigt feine Tannine und gutes Potenzial. Etwas Würze, rote Beeren, Unterholz und Röstaromen. Im Abgang recht lang und harmonisch.
