Aged in concrete and in SS Finely focused on the nose with floral laced high toned, black fruit. In the mouth one finds a clean and fresh feel that shows off the classic weight of Barbera. There’s just a hint of flesh, soft tannins, good obvious but not high acid all supporting lovely pure of fruit on the palate. Finishing firmly this unfolds in the mouth with mineral notes and a clean, palate cleansing wash of acid on the finale.Perfumed in the mouth, this does seem to be missing just a bit of fruit. 89pts

Deep purplish, almost impenetrable red. Elegant, sweet and tempting, the intense and fruity notes characteristic of Barbera emerge. Vinous, fresh and well balanced. An easy to drink wine which is tasty and rich without being excessively binding.

Bright dark red with ruby highlights. Lovely perfumed lift to the aromas of black cherry, violet and red licorice. Sappy, vibrant black cherry and floral flavors boast impressive silkiness of texture for 2012 barbera. Finishes juicy and long, with a palate-staining whiplash of fruit.

Cherry and black currant notes meld with the juicy texture in this supple Barbera. Pure and elegant, with fine harmony and a lingering aftertaste of fruit and spice. Drink now through 2017.
