Giovanni Sordo Barbera d'Alba 2013

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Attractively vinous on the nose with mineral and gently smoky aromas that still show a hint of malo. Bright acids temper a little fruit sweetness early on the palate, then this turns mineral through the midpalate, with flavors of red plums and blackberries that are simple but nicely balanced. Acid is present but there's a softness to this wine with a very fruity backend that shows just a suggestion of grapes skin tannin. The finish shows a soft fruitiness making this super easy to drink. fruity but boy is this long. 87pts
