Gio Dominico Negro 2011

Member Review by jescobio:

Nothing like a little Italian Barbera while the wife is out of town. Initial nose was earth and plummy. Lots of fat jam in the nose. First tastes were a bit overly acidic with notes of plum and currents. I put my glass down and walked the dogs. 20 minutes later. Transformation. The nose is a bit more rigid but the earthyness has slowly vanished. The acidity has slowed down and now there are delicious tones of strawberries and red raspberries. Surprised by how much I really enjoyed this. Cheers.
