Giacomo Conterno Barbera d'Alba Cerretta 2015

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Dark, spicy and soil driven on the nose with a hint of sweet vanilla candy framing rich dark fruit. Delivering lots of fruit on the attack, this fills the mouth with big plum fruit and shows a hint of black currant jam. Texturally this is quite round, with some tannins contributing to a feel that is a bit chewy and chunky. The acids kick in on the back end and drive the powerful spicy plummy fruit through the very long finish. This is fairly elegant in the mouth though it does show heat on the finish. 91pts

The 2009 Barbera d'Alba Cerretta is a huge wine bursting with dark red cherries, plums, sweet herbs, rose petal and all sorts of mineral notes. Smoke, ash and tar develop in the glass. The 2009 Cerretta is an intense, virile Barbera that needs at lea... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Barbera wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2009 Conterno, Giacomo Barbera Cerretta 750ml
