Pretty bouquet of violets with raspberry, clove, mint and licorice. It's pretty and feminine. Cherry, raspberry jam and light clove and mint. Finishes a tad sour. 88 pts. 12/8/12

Leather and cherry on the nose. Bright violets in the mouth with medium acidity. Licorice, coffee bay leaf and cigar wrapper later on the mid palate and a sour cherry finish. White chocolate notes linger.

Ruby red in colour, accompanied by fairly intense aromas - berries, vanilla, spices. Additional herbs in flavor. Notable acids and medium tannins in a medium-bodied and vigorous structure. Moderately complex with nice and long finish. Pair this with "herbal stews". 78 points. Not fully worth its price.

    Good deep red. Wild aromas of roasted red fruits, coffee, chocolate, animal fur and minerals, plus a whiff of nutty oak. Broad, rich and round if a bit sauvage, with red fruit, smoke, earth, leather and mineral flavors saturating the palate. This solid and somewhat chocolatey barbera comes virtually entirely from "Barolo soils" in La Morra, Serralunga, Monforte d'Alba and Castiglione Falletto. No shortage of acidity on the back.

    Fruity and fun, with red currant jelly, minerals and a hint of fresh herbs. Medium- to full-bodied, with good silky concentration on the palate and a chocolaty note on the finish. Drink now.

    Shows blueberry and floral aromas, with hints of sandalwood. Full-bodied, with cream and vanilla character. This is tight and solid - and just right now. Drink now.

    Full ruby-red. Plum, currant, black cherry, and cedary, spicy oak on the nose. Sweet, spicy and full, with good density and lovely verve. Finishes spicy and persistent.

    The Barbera grapes grown in the Barolo area, give full structure, plummy and complex flavour, with spicy and ripefruit, blackberry aroma and a hint of toasted tobacco. It ages quite well.

    This wine announces its modern intentions with polished opening notes of vanilla, caramel and coffee from aging in small French oak barrels. The intense palate shows cherry and boysenberry fruit which lead into a long, very complex finish. Will gain more complexity with a few years in the cellar but may be drunk now for the appeal of its youthful fruit.
