  • Sergio Barale Barbera d'Alba Preda 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Prosciutto, crushed berry fruit, tree bark, ink, and hints of smoky, candle wax and cocoa greet the nose with great nuance. In the mouth this is pretty round and decidedly big on the back end with a powerful, round finish that shows good persistence to the dark berry fruit. In spite of its size this is pretty easy going on the palate, not soft, ... Read More

  • Poderi Luigi Einaudi Langhe Barbera 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Tight on the nose with hints of pencil shavings and a bit of toasty oak over reticent fruit. This offers up great mouthfeel, a bit soft for Barbera but still has good acids, just a bit fleshy yet retaining nice transparency on the palate for a big wine that shows a hint of woody sweetness accenting the somewhat simple black plum and black rasp...

  • Prunotto Barbera Barbera d'Alba Pian Romualdo 2011

    Snoothrank:

    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 b... Read More

  • Cavallotto Barbera d'Alba Bricco Boschis Vigna del Cuculo 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Medicinal on the nose with early hints of bit shoe leather followed by fruit that is dark and earthy in style. Dark fruit on entry is surprisingly fresh in the mouth but has a lot of dried fruit and black fruit character. There's acid here but this shows plenty of flesh black fruit, a little soft edge of tobacco wood spice, in a style that is ... Read More

  • Oddero Barbera d'Alba 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Nicely focused on the nose with dark floral notes a little earthy, dark plummy fruit, and a little mineral top note. In the mouth this is very clean, fresh and bright, with a character that is a touch on the simple, easy going side. Theres nice earthy length here and fine purity to the fruit which is tense and shows a nice mineral edge, growing ... Read More

  • Giovanni Sordo Barbera d'Alba Superiore 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Black berry jam is deep on the nose framed with hints of nutty cola and lots of very subtle prosciutto and herb accents. Almost jammy on entry, theres lots of fruit but but tart fruits, jammy wild berry, black frutti del Bosco that pick up nuanced balsamic, forest floor notes on the palate. This shows attractive complexity, though it comes acros... Read More

  • Vietti Barbera d'Asti la Crena 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Lots of red fruit shows up on this sweet nose which picks up a little forest floor and clay soil notes with air. A Touch soft for Barbera, with soft tannins lending this a velvety, easy to drink texture. Lots of plummy, red fruit is large scaled and fresh in the mouth with those tiny tannins making this fun to drink but the finish, slightly jamm... Read More

  • Brovia 'Ciabot del Fi' Barbara d'Alba 2011

    Snoothrank:

    From the Brea vineyard in Serralunga, aged in mid sized barrels and SS,A bit tarry and balsamic on the nose with hints of pine cone and pignoli along with a little VA lifted gamy and sour plummy fruit. This is already showing some evolution on the nose. Quite beefy on entry with powerful fruit, good acids but well integrated in the small red f... Read More

  • Brovia Barbera d'Alba Sori del Drago 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Ash greets the nose with a hint of redux along with aromas of ink, very black fruit, and a little pepperoni Rich with some breadth on entry followed by bright cutting acids supporting very pure black plum skin and black berry that is bright and energetic. Theres a hint of mintiness here on the backend that leads to a long acid driven sour cherry... Read More

  • Prunotto Barbera d'Asti Fiulot 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Bottling the 2013 now, to be released in 6 weeksVery floral on the nose, which shows a bit of freshly ground coffee and black spice along with a hint of fish sauce, though it remains tight and earthy. Clean fresh and bright in the mouth and displaying absolutely pure fruit, this is very pretty with juicy acids that are very Barbera. This still h... Read More
