Renato Ratti Barbera Barbera d'Alba Torriglione 2007
Aromas of currant, spices, and earth with notes of cocoa. Also had a very slight medicinal note. Medium body with very soft tannins and a great velvety mouthfeel. Finish was light and dusty with hints of chocolate. Delicate and well-balanced, quite good.Add winemaker's notes
Half way up the hill overlooking the main Barolo valley, along the first spurs of the neatly aligned vineyards, lies the Abbey of the Annunziata (Our Lady of the Annunciation), a priceless jewel of the 15th Century. Just as the good friars of centuries past produced wines from the grapes grown along the hollow below their abbey, a position of glory and grandeur, today, faithful to their same timeless wisdom, wines of incomparable quality are produced.

This vintage is more powerful, has more body than the year 2004 which we have tasted before. It has a great fruity taste with some spices and a lovely fresh taste. This wine is superb to light Italian dishes. http://winesworld.net/wine-e.aspx?velg=Italy&v2=2259
