Only produced in special vintage, ie no 2012 Smells of wood, smoky and a little mushroomy with some Irish spring soap, and hints of slate, blue fruit, and sweet wood. Round, lush, packed with blue fruit on entry this is awfully sexy in the mouth in a powerful soft and sleek style There’s a little wood tannin drying out the finish a bit but this does have plenty of concentration of fruit and it shows excellent persistence on the finish. 89pts

Fruit from the lowest part of Rionda and west facing part of Margheria, called le tourne. Only produced in top vintages Creamy on the nose with a wood smoke top note over fine candied medicinal notes, the oak is fairly obvious. Big, ripe, polished, powerful, and deep on the palate with big fruit and creamy oak on the backend leading to long black cherry slightly candied finish. Integrated but powerful acids keep this lively in the mouth and while this has potential to improve, it's rather regal for Barbera already. It’s not my favorite due to the obvious oak but you can’t deny the quality here. 92pts
