Renato Ratti Barbera d'Ast I 2009
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.
Very nice fruit notes, lots of berry, tart cherry and a bit of plum. Well structured tannins make for a pleasant finish. Enjoying this one at L'Eden Supper Club in Tampa with some champaign steamed Atlantic salmon, nice combination!
A great Barbera d'Asti for a good price.
