Cordero di Montezemolo Barbera d'Alba Funtani 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Oldest vineyard of Barbera that is full south facing towards Monforte, small grapes, always makes a powerful wine, high alcohol and high acid, fifteen months in wood, barrique, some botte, almost all new wood, normally uses lots of new wood here, Black fruit and oak greet the nose along with a nice hit of leather. This manages to get spicy black cherry aromas out but shows too much oak on the nose. In the mouth this is silky on entry, well integrated, rich and ina voluptuous style that hides its 15% but well. theres quite a bit of brightness on the back end, though this is quite creamy in the mouth with black cherry and spicy oak notes moving from the palate to the slightly dry and tannic finish. Muscular and opulent, rather from the more is better school of winemaking, one can see why this is popular. 87pts
