Damilano Barbera d'Asti 2009

Blueberry and strawberry on the nose, with flowers and citrus. Medium-bodied, showing tar and lemon peel notes, with dark cherry hints. Drink now.

The 2008 Barbera d'Asti is another big, racy wine packed with fruit. A persistent vein of minerality supports the long, elegant finish. This is a terrific new wine from Damilano made from a recently-acquired vineyard in Asti. The Barbera d'Asti replaces the Barbera d'Alba, which was made from rented vineyards, and which will no longer be produced. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2013.

This is a very attractive oak-aged Barbera with aromas of sweet spice, bitter chocolate and loads of bright berry fruit. The wine is compact, clean and thanks to the bright acidity, it leaves your palate polished and fresh.

This youthful expression if Barbera comes forth with ripe and raw aromas of black fruit, plum, prune and wild berries. You really feel the freshness of the fruit here and this wine would pair perfectly with pasta or pizza.
