Cappellano Barbera d'Alba Gabutti 2013

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Smoky, ripe and complex on the nose, with deep earthy, medicinal accents to the candied black fruit and a lovely hint of chocolate liquor and chocolate covered cherry. Electric acids on attack are followed by rich,powerfully dark yet fresh fruit, unfolding gorgeous layers of plum, earth, and gently spiced fruit. This is an incredible wine, long and incredibly pure considering the power, with a little wild yeast nose adding lots of complexity on the nose. Finishing with incredible length and minerality to the tight, small wild dark cherry on the finale, this is one of the best Barberas ever tasted. Stunning.
