Producer Tasting Notes

The year 2016 gave us harmonious climatic conditions, resulting in a Barbera that is both elegant and complex. It has an intense purple color with ruby highlights. The aromas are full and forward; first there are scents of ripe red fruits of excellent maturity, with notes of cherries preserved in alcohol, prune plums and jam. These are followed by soft aromas of cacao and spices such as black pepper, which in turn open to reveal ethereal notes of perfectly toasted oak. The palate is dry, warm and full, and the continuing aromatics recall the initial fragrant notes of red berry jam. The bright acidity both frames and focuses the excellent drinkability. Overall this is a young Barbera of good promise. The slight angularity of youth - a result of the exuberance of acid and tannin - portends positive harmonious development with a few years of cellaring. This wine will pair well with savory, complex dishes, particularly braised red meats.
