Previously available for $39.99
Two years slavonian oak Fairly opaque color for Barbera, ,this comes from Bricco delle Viole, old vines of 40 years or more, Very aromatic and both subtle and complex on the nose with aromas of forest floor, violets, soil and macerated black fruits. On entry here is a bit noticeable wood tannin, though this is round, opulent and rich, with a hint of RS and filled with jammy black fruits. Silky smooth with great depth of flavor, there is impressive freshness here considering the power and weight, and there are also some fairly prominent tannins that help drive the plum and wild cherry flavors through the long savory finish. this holds its 15% very well and if you think, outside of Barbera expectations this is a very special wine. 93pts
