Floral and slightly sweet aromas are spicy, hot and intoxicating. Spicy and juicy wine with a good bit of cherry flavors, oak and cream on the finish with a hint of chocolate. Great value!
combinations of raspberries, buttery oak and flowers on the nose. palate mixed with buttery popcorn, varying red fruits with a little earth and tarriness. quite impressive and complex for its value. great to bring to a house party!
They redid their label like the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon on here with a firm twist cap, no doubt marketing themselves to the new wine generation. I was expecting something something less, but it was a pleasant, easy-to-drink Barbera, lacking only in some of the earthiness I expect from this italian grape. Will buy another to see if I can get past the fruitiness, see if I can find the "hints of toasty graham cracker" the label said I should find.
Butter on the nose, then straw, and very light, very thoughtful leather; in the mouth there's deep, black raspberry and a dusting of powdered sugar. Finish is long, warm, and embracingly toasty. Complex & refreshing.
Spicy black berries on the nose. Some black pepper. Great taste with good spice. This is pretty good, though I was a little drunk at this point in the night so, give or take half a glass.
Bold red wine. Plum and cherry flavors. Fruit forward. Good option with a red meat instead of a cab.

External Reviews for Montevina Barbera Terra d'Oro
Wine Tasting NotesMontevina Terra dOro Barbera takes the varietal beyond clean, bright, and fruity to sophisticated and elegant. Satin sheets of black cherry blanket your tongue and a mild nutmeg spice warms you further. Caramel and toffee flavors brought on by the oak add complexity and deepen the smooth rich finish. This Barbera is appropriately dressed to accompany any white tablecloth meal or is perfectly comfortable at home cuddled on the couch.
