2021/5/3-4 with Ningbo stewed pork with red fermented tofu and yakitori, itadori and mayonnaise, warabi and takenoko yaki onigiri. I was both curious and nervous about this considering my experience with the Montestefano. This also started out a bit ponderous and volatile, but on the second day it had calmed into a nice, bitter cherry dolcetto. — 7 days ago
a total happy surprise of a bottle given to me day two by my parents after a somm-led digital tasting. you can find it at BCL. — a month ago
Tastes better than many Barolo’s. The aromatic range is bit narrow with emphasis on warm, dark tonality and doesn’t seem like it is holding back much. Definitely a modern wine with polished fruit but better than many traditional Barolo’s that are just not well-made. — 5 days ago

This is a nice Barbera from Italy. Much bigger than I expected it to be. Showing mild complexity with a nice mouthfeel.
Still young and would be better in a few years. Would be nice to revisit it in 3 years. A good quality wine.
Good right out of the bottle, and gets earthier as it opens up. After 90 minutes of airtime, tannins show up, and bring in more structure. After 3 hours, the tannins become grippy.
A good food wine that I paired with a Charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.
100% Barbera grapes were aged in New oak barrels for 20 months.
15.5% alcohol by volume.
