Nice, light mint and herb tones add some detail to the dusty, lightly smoky huckleberry fruit. Lovely acidity and brightness up front, this is appealing right off the bat. There is a lightness and elegance on the palate, yet this has great depth of flavor. The fruit turns aromatic and bright on the back end, picking up accent notes of tree bark, a hint of wood, some candied anise and Chinese five spice all wrapped around the transparent black raspberry fruit. The finish is a touch short and shows a bit of heat but with good complexity and appealing balance. 88pts

The nose showed ripe red berries and slight confectionary notes with spice and sawdust. On the palate, it was dark and spicy with a dollop of fresh acidity and soft textures yielding red and black fruits. The finish was dry, showing medicinal cherry and dark chocolate. It was easy to drink and refreshing.

Note from tasting: more fruit forward [than the D'Asti], cherries ["The Other Piedmont" at Bin 105, Lincoln NE, 19 May 2012. My favorite from the tasting, I picked up the 2008, an equal or better vintage]

Sharp somewhat sour nose. Tart flavors initially, currant or cherry...Followed by toast, and a mineral or earthy finish. This wine doesn't feel like a mouthful, and the acidity makes it exciting to drink.

Widely available, at a price point that brings about a smile, Vietti’s Barbera d’Asti Tre Vigne is made from grapes selected from approximately 10 year old vines in Agliano d’Asti. The wine spends 14 months in oak barrels or oak casks, followed by 2 months in steel tanks. The 09 is all blue and black fruits on the nose, a touch of vanilla (to us who are not big on vanilla and toasty oaky flavors, Vietti seems to balance it out to our liking somewhat), mineral, and spice. Good acidity, with a peppery end to it. Medium length. Not bad at all for a sub-20 dollar wine. And one of the few wines at this price point that gets better the following day, where the earthy aromas takes over, as well as it feels more balanced. http://bit.ly/K4O3Ri

Dieser Barbera zeigt im Bukett Noten nach roten Beeren, Blumen und Gewürzen. Im Hintergrund sind dezente Röstaromen. Die Tannine sind feinkörnig und die Säure wirkt gut balanciet und stützend.

Shows bright acidity, soft tannins with good integration of oak, good complexity and a lingering cherry finish.

This red wine has a great palate with earthiness, tobacco, leather, cherries and currants. A very pretty Barbera in all senses of the word - in texture and fruit.
