Vietti Barbera d'Asti "La Crena" Italy Piedmont Sparkling & Champagne Barbera Vietti 2007
"Vietti’s 2007 Barbera d’Asti La Crena is a thrilling glass of wine. Jammy dark fruit, minerals, spices and French oak come together beautifully in this opulent, gorgeous La Crena. Today the wine is naturally quite primary, but with another few years in the bottle, it should develop plenty of tertiary nuances. I generally have my best experiences with La Crena around age ten, and have found it to be a wine that can stand side by side with just about anything. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019...94" WA 12/10

Deeper and darker than I expected compared to other B d'Astis but enjoyable at the price. Better the 2nd night.
Excellent value, terrific food wine with just the right amount of acidity.
This young wine shows a beautiful purple, ruby color in the glass and offers a nice mouthful of ripe cherry and fresh berries. The tannins are soft on this medium-bodied wine, and there's a nice level of acidity making the Vietti Barbera D'Asti perfect for pairing with food. Could benefit from a few years in the bottle, but can be enjoyed right away.
