  • Barbera D Alba Bricco Dei Merli Elvio Cogno 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Macerated plums, sandalwood, and jammy boysenberry fruit greet the nose in a rather fruit driven and pronounced way. Round on entry with nice fleshy plum fruit that shows little boysenberry flashes along with a little jammy black currant note and black cherry preserves. This is very well knit, though very fruity in style with soft tannins and a ... Read More

    Cough lozenge, brownie, baked fruit, smith brothers black cherry fruit fruit and even a little blackberry shows up on the nose. This is very fresh in the mouth, a little round up front then the tannins kicks in, a bit hard and angular but entirely appropriate. This is very fresh for a 2009 with very pretty, chiseled red currant and cranberry fr... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Three youngest parts of Ravera Intense on the nose with scents of leather, slightly dried fruits,a bit of biscuit, dried peach, some subtle toasty spice and bresaola notes, and a little funghi. Aromatically this is quite complex, fairly fruity, and a little spicy. Opulent on entry, this quickly finds its center with layers of vibrant red fruits,... Read More
