Pic #4. 2015 Andrea Oberto ‘Giada’ Barbera d’Alba. Offered a deep ruby hue, with a bouquet of aromas including dark red fruit, vanillin, and ambrosial notes, the texture was soft on the palate. This was paired so well with the tortellini photographed on the prior picture, 3.

Bit of a unicorn 🦄. Pre-Phylloxera vines from 1902! The nose is like smelling a bowl of fresh raspberries. Ridiculously dense and chewy on the palate with black raspberries and raspberry coulis giving way to cracked granite, limestone, dry earth and savory herbs. Nice grip. This needed about an hour decant to really show. — 23 days ago
Another nice surprise of our cellar clearing: the 3 litre bottle vintage 2003 was very nice. I doubt that the wine would benefit from getting older. The wine had a very clear red, smell of berries and a smooth and surprisingly fresh taste. Everyone enjoyed it! — 8 days ago
Super lush chocolate covered cherry aromatics. Dry and tart, barely ripe raspberry-cherry, on the palate. #winesofitaly — a day ago
Earthy, leather, malty raspberry smell, thick maltiness with raspberry jam, and acid that is hidden somewhat but there — 3 days ago
This is fantastic. Immediately roses jumps out of the glass with bright red fruit and a bit of earth. There’s good mouth coating acidity with a somewhat chalky tannin structure. There’s nice red fruit and blackberry on the palate. Pairing is perfect with chicken and squash or meatballs and spaghetti. Just yum! — 2 days ago
Asian Lilly, soft hibiscus, non-acidic raspberry, touch vanilla, slight low fire caramel (eccentric but you’ll see) smell, color is a thick raspberry purple, the attack is straight forward and balanced, there is a maltiness that encompasses the raspberries that have a juicy profile with limited acid, green coffee tastes, the malt sticks to the end and lets the acids construct as the taste fades leaving a subtle metallic essence at the finish - in all fairness the balance is so perfect in a way that I feel that it’s my tongue and not the wine. I think that’s an important comment as with the right tongue this is perfection. — 24 days ago
