An immediate, intense nose of deep, dark fruit with a muscular disposition that reveals green floral, balsam and spice notes above the coiled fruit. Big and dense in the mouth this will need a bit of time to show well though it is layered and long with exceptional intensity and great acidity that is couched in the chewy fruit. This has the feel of very ripe, perfectly ripe fruit. 2011-2018 92pts

Superb. A wine that confirms my desire to want to move to Piemonte. Luscious. Harmonious. Elegant. Rich. Bejeweled. Quite a stunner. Dark forest floor fruit on the nose seduce you into the wine. Aromatic midpalate broadens the weight in the mouth without making the wine feel heavy. And the finish is soft and complete. Truly spectacular showing. Not sure I could age this wine; too good to drink right now.

This is a balanced and expressive Barbera from a legendary traditionalist. It is unmatched in its sophistication, yet it positively explodes with dark fruit, licorice and spice.

The 2006 Barbera d'Alba is a knockout. The aromatics alone are worth the price of admission. This rich, sumptuous Barbera tastes just like it did in barrel, which is to say plump, juicy and full of vibrant dark fruit. Notes of iron, tar and smoke tha... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
