Healthy dark red. Bitter cherry, violet and licorice aromas. Intense dark berry and spice flavors hint at almost jammy ripeness, but bright acidity gives the wine a juicy, penetrating quality and terrific grip. An especially saliva-inducing example of this extremely flexible food wine.

Bright ruby-red. Blackberry and cassis aromas display a liqueur-like ripeness. A rich, concentrated fruit bomb in the mouth, with concentrated flavors of black fruits, violet and licorice. Finishes long and powerful. Impressively rich for a barbera from vines less than ten years old.

Always an attractive wine, the 2004 Barbera d'Asti Ca' di Pian shows plenty of sweet dark plumy fruit with excellent concentration on the palate and a lovely underlying note of minerality that provides freshness. It is sure to provide much pleasure over the next several years. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2010.

Black currant and bilberry fruit signals this fresh, vivid Barbera. It has light tannins, but overall shows balance and harmony. Lingering finish. Drink now through 2015.

Mineral, flowers, ripe fruit and toasty oak aromas follow through to a full body, with soft tannins and a citrus fruit aftertaste. Drink now.

Winemaker's Notes:

The Barbera d'Asti Ca' di Pian is a very upfront wine which currently shows a very balanced use of barrique. Ten months ageing succeeds in smoothing out any harsh acidity with the vanilla sweetness of new wood, without compromising the rich, red fruit. This is excellent served with roasted red and white meats, and strong cheeses. Specific pairs might include: penne with stir-fried beef and red bell pepper, provencal lamb with Mediterranean vegetables, pistachio-crusted pork with plum sauce and fried leeks or spiced venison steaks with red-cabbage confit and red-wine sauce.
