Guido Porro Barbera Barbera d'Alba Santa Caterina 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Bottled fifteen days ago, six months in botte Very tight on the nose with gentle spice and floral aromas. With, a little spritz on the palate, this is rather soft and round and lacks some of the focus one might like to see in Barbera. There’s lots of flannelly rich fruit, , long on the palate and sweetly plummy then tart. Air brings out lots of fresh cut plums on the nose as well. This is rather in a rich and silky style with a long tart red plum finish and some powdery tannins. It’s very early to being trying this but it does show promise. 88pts
