Cascina Delle Rose Barbera Superiore Donna Elena 2004

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Tobacco, dried raspberries, tar, earth, spice, and a little blackcurrant fruit all waft up gently from the glass. Opening with good acids this is quickly soft, broad in the mouth, ripe with a touch of pomegranate and chocolate wrapped around black cherry fruit that is supported by bright fine tannins and lots of chocolate on the finish. This is fresh,with pretty perfumes in the mouth and lovely length to the slightly candied black raspberry fruit. I tasted this blind and did not think it was Barbera. A gorgeously aged example. 92pts
