Gorgeous on the nose, just classic Barbera with hints of tart blueberry, mulberry, a whisper of smoke and just gorgeous precise aromas of something sweet, with hints of dried berry fruit, and coffee toned shoe leather. Bright on entry, rich, even broad in the mouth. this is fruit driven, and just joyous in the mouth, showing zesty on the back end then following through with great length and just a whisper of heat on the finish. This lacks the complexity of the best but doesn't need it, as it’s all about clarity and purity which it has in spades. 90pts

Almost 6 grams of acidity Lovely floral spice pops on the precise nose which shows off precise aromas of fresh fruit that are quite high tned. Perhaps a touch soft on the palate this exhibits lovely clarity with black fruit that is just a touch roasted. The acidity appears later on the palate lending an elegance here and cleansing the palate. This turns into a bit of fruit bomb, not in a pejorative way but this is bursting with juicy black berry, fruit and black plum flavors that linger on the long black fruited finish. 88pts

This is really aromatic with sour plum, charcoal earth, dusty earth, a little cedar, wild raspberry, licorice, and forest floor aromas. Totally impressive on the nose and brilliantly open and clear on the palate with a lovely fruit that shows a roundness to the edges but no loss of tension. The acidity is bright yet integrated, offering good cut on the palate and lifting the perfumed fruit through the tangy, gently floral finish. A classic Barbera. 92pts

Lacks a bit of freshness on the nose, with a bit of wood spice and raw wood tones with a really intense rose top note. Lush and sexy on the palate with a velvety feel to the dense but not heavy mid-palate that is full of rich, dark flavors. The fruit is a bit jammy, dark cherry tones, and framed with spicy wood tones. The wood contributes some tannin on the finish as well. While this is in many ways the equal of the classico Barbera, I prefer that wine. 88pts

Huge, soaring aromatics are captured here with note of cold earth, pollen, wild animale notes and slightly spicy notes of black-fruited hard candy. In the mouth this is perfectly proportioned with deep, lively fruit a hint of round tannin and snappy acids. The finish is dominated by the acids but with excellent length and reverb. Super Barbera. 90pts

10 day maceration in tini, temperature controlled if needed, Malolactic fermentation in Stainless followed by about 10 months in botte. This offers intense and focused notes of black fruit and moist earth that are so typical of Barbera. With time notes of rose petals, sweet spices, and a touch of forest fruits add to the perfume. Elegant with lovely balance in the mouth one finds very lovely balance here with fine acid serving like the frame of a kite supporting a sheen of transparent fruit, no need for tannin here. This is easy to like with pure black raspberry fruit and subtle notes of black spices and rosemary adding interest. The finish is classic Barbera, bracing with cleansing acids offering great precision to the spread of black cherry fruit. Maybe a bit simple but broad and with good length. 90pts

lovely violet color with an initial nose of cherries. Quite vinous at the beginning but opened up with secondary savory aromas of onions, herbs and dusty earth. Full and fresh in the mouth... a very interesting Barbera!
