Smells a bit marshmallow, vanilla, pencil lead rich in a bit dull and heavy vein. Opening with sweet fruit and toast flavors in a broad style, this shows nice acidity making the midpalate bright and lively with lots of strawberry fruit and a little whipped creaminess from the oak. There is noticeable wood tannin all across the tongue and through the short finish. This is a bit chunky and shows an inelegant use of wood. 87pts

With perfumes of small strawberries in alcohol this exhibits more Nebbiolo fruit backed up with integrated wood, camphor and mint aromas. The bright acids on entry are quickly covered by very subtly creamy and compact red fruits. Dense with tannins that are slightly austere yet polished,there is still nice focus and detail here with a nice savory finish. This shows some vitality and elegance, and is quite classic but the oak is noticeable if not obtrusive on the nose and it adds a textural note on the palate. 90pts

Lighter in character than the 2009 with dried citrus peels, tea leaf, rose petal, and barely ripe red berry fruit on the nose. A bit narrow but fairly ripe on the palate,with fine grained tannins lending this a transparent and elegant feel with a nice silky texture. The palate reveals layers of leafy fennel, soil driven, and slightly umami flavors, with a lovely sweetness on the finish that contrasts the very precise tannins. 90pts

Colour: Brilliant ruby red medium intensity with light violet tinges. Bouquet: Intense and persistent, fruity, reminiscent of raspberries, strawberries, sour black cherry, cherry jam. Taste: Balanced, full, harmonius, pleasently tannic with persistent aftertaste.

Garnet-red in color with ruby reflections. An intense odor with clean scents of vanilla, roasted hazelnuts, licorice and spices. Full, elegant, full-bodied and austere flavor with recurring hints of the olfactory sensations. Pleasant touch of tar and oaky notes in perfect equilibrium.

Really hard to beat the incredible value this vibrant red delivers. Marchesi di Barolo is a historic producer in Piedmont and their portfolio includes extraordinary single vineyard Barolos, but at the introductory end we find this delicious, bright Barbera that’s easy to love from both taste and budget standpoints. Blended with 10% Dolcetto for added smoothness, this wine is brimming with charming ripe cherry fruit and supple racy tannins. A perfect match to your favorite pizza.
