At this price point this wine is silky smooth with a full mouth feel and a long full finish. I find this somewhat surprising given that the tannins are very light. Some Barberas are thin and narrow on the finish. Not Briccotondo. Aromas of strawberry and cherry are prevelant, and vanilla and caramel/brown sugar follow subtly under the fruit. A definite winner with pasta in garlic and olive oil sauces and seafood or chicken. I don't think it will hold up well to a heavy, Italian style ragu. But that's ok, get a different wine for that meal.

The nose is packed with black fruit, especially blackberries and plumps, with slight spicy overstones hinting at black pepper and cinnamon. Sweet, soft tannins come together in a closely-woven texture that merges with the fruit, while a crisp freshness provides a long, tasty finish.

Very plummy and grapey on the nose with hints of chocolate. Full-bodied soft and succulent with lots of flavor and a long long finish. Delicious. WS 90 Points
