Cigliuti Barbera d'Alba Campass 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

In Piedmont, Barbera has always played second fiddle to Nebbiolo, the grape ofBarolo & Barbaresco. Now that Barolo prices are so high, the earliermaturing Barbera is coming into its own. One of my great Barbera discoveriescomes from Renato Cigliuti. Renato makes exceptional late-picked Barbera in amodernist style. His single-vineyard Campass Barbera is perfumed with violetand rose aromas; followed by juicy morello cherry fruits on the palate and aspicy, complex, delicious finish; (Rose Murray Brown - The Scotsman - Barbera's Back -Mon 21 Mar 09)

AWE blind tasting -dirty, old wood, kind of cola character of dirty old barrel, a bit stripped, and bitter, primitive, rustic and drying, totally without charm 70-72
