Barbera d'Alba Superiore 2015

Vintage 2015 / #barbera with sultry cherries and high acidity. I don’t taste the high alcohol (14,5%) because it is good integrated. Smooth taste. Also some chocolate. With risotto porcini. At ristorante Mario in Neck. — a day ago

Santo Stefano di Perno Superiore Barbera d'Alba 2015

Expressive nose of sweet and sour cherries, blue berries, incense, and dried flower. Round and bright palate with medium to high acidity and soft bittersweet tannins. From a tiny 2/3 of a hectare family holding of the Santo Stefano di Perno vineyard, aged for 18 months in used Slovakia oak barrel, this Barbera shows exceptional freshness and purity of the fruits at this young age, but also has depth and structure to age further. — a month ago

Dolcetto d'Alba 2016

Bright, grapey and grippy initially. Tannins become a little dusty and the fruit veers towards cherry and plum. This has a light feel though it is anything but a light wine. Reminds me of very good Cru Beaujolais. — 9 days ago

Vigneti Cerreto Barbera d'Alba 2014

Beautiful black cherry, black plum and tomato leaves on the nose. Very concentrated juice, tannins are so soft that you can barely feel it. Raging high acidity, great food pairing wine. — 8 days ago

Decanted for 30 min. Light elegant nose, some berries, some underwood, taste is again very elegant, not any long aftertaste, thrilling but not mindblowing, still two more, hide for 5 years maybe or just drink😇 — 3 days ago
