Intensely aromatic on the nose and deep with hints of herbs and burnt brownie, apples and asian spices. On the palate this displays a superb texture, integrated and tightly knit showing a soft and broad density in the mouth though remaining transparent and freshly fruited with palate staining intensity to the cherry skin and wild berry flavors. Showing pretty big tannic structure for Barbera, this remains lacy but with firm edged tannins, showing a little Burgundian texture on the backend where bright acids really come out on leading to a long finish with fine persistence to the fruit. A hint of heat mars the otherwise pure and precise finish. 92pts

Two three days more of maceration, one year 15 Hl in botte Production is from .66 hectare, 1500 bottles, half point of alcohol higher than the normal bottling, plants yield small clusters, very small and very tight, small berries, give a wine of unusual extraction and richness, Chocolate and toasted herbs greet the nose followed by hint, a little of herb stem, a touch of dried basil stem, earth, ash, old wood and a bit of dried berry fruit. This is exciting in the mouth, rich and with great depth yet clear and bright as it dances across the palate. The purity of the black fruit is terrific and the nice firm tannins and lovely firm and integrated acids offer exceptional balance yielding an elegant wine that has an innate sweetness to the fruit and a lightly tactile quality to the dry extract. Fascinating wine. 92pts
