« Prev Next » 3 of 13
Average price: $24.99 from 3 stores
Chocolate, ivy, black cherry, and mineral come together on the nose with just a subtle underlay of wood,. Big acids on entry let you know this is Barbera, and this remains brilliant in the mouth with huge drive on the palate and great clarity to the red cherry and black plummy fruit. With fabulous balance and integration of flavors, you get just a hint of cognac spice from the oak accenting the fruit on the palate, this has great drive and focus in the mouth and shows great length on the gorgeous finish. A Barbera that seems likely to age exceptionally well for more than a decade, this is only held back by a little alcoholic warmth on the finish. 92pts
