Barbera D´asti Lavignone Pico Maccario 90swj Premier 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"...Upon opening, the aromas show a complex blend of raspberry, macerated strawberry, hyacinth, rosemary, dried basil, cigars, and ash. Medium bodied, soave and straightforward on the attack, where plum and red berry flavors are slightly grapey, and which pick up black pepper and soil-infused notes on the lengthy finish. Over the course of 48 hours, the wine smoothes out even more, revealing blueberry and mineral notes and even greater refinement. This is a young pup that needs time to show its full potential...Drink now-2013...90." Sonoma Wine Journal 10/09
