Prunotto Costamiole Barbera d'Asti 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2009 Barbera d’Asti Costamiole shows the pedigree of this site. It is at once weightless yet intense and marvelously focused. Dark red berries, flowers, spices, and mint are some of the many nuances that flow through to the pointed, beautifully articulated finish. Another year or two in bottle will only help...92" WA 10/12

100% new barrique Smoky but briary on the nose with obvious wood spice supporting rich, dark fruit, this wraps everything up in a gauze of cocoa and tobacco. Rich with fruit, and just a touch softer than one might like yet retaining plenty of acidity, this offers clear and slightly chewy plummy fruit with hints of red currant and raspberries on the palate, finishing very clearly with wood tannins emerging and drying out the palate a touch. Air bring out lots of coffee cream on the nose, but this is a fairly elegant expression of barbera, with a hint of caramel. Not my style but in the style pretty good. 90pts
