Crivelli

Grignolino d'Asti 2017

Light ruby red with orange hue, transparent. Red berries, red cherry, licorice with hint of dried herbs. Light bodied, super dry with high acidity and scrubby tannin. Not super complex but a great summer red. Served slightly chilled. — 5 days ago

9.0

Drank 6/5/19. Very nice with Rigatoni Bolognese.

Scents of red cherry, leather, and a hint of earth. Bright red fruit flavors of red cherry and strawberry, backed by medium tannins. A touch of spice on the medium, red fruit filled finish.

Very nice for the price (around $15 at Costco).

3/22/8/4/3 +50 =90 pts.

La Bogliona Barbera d'Asti 2010

9.0

2010 has lots of acidities and lots of fruit still not fully merged with the structure, therefore it is still top heavy and slightly unbalanced. It still possesses the sense of authority, integrity and completeness all great wines have. — 13 days ago

Tre Vigne Barbera d'Asti 2016

From the depths of studying-Italy-is-hell I bring you Barbera-is-heaven. Seriously WHY are we not coveting all the (good) Barbera. This is the stuff and people still don’t know so the price is...oh wait, hush, don’t tell anyone! I’d like to keep buying it at these prices though it deserves far more. It goes down like flower-enchanted Pinot Noir that is unmistakably Italian. It just has that extra kick of sour and earth that alerts one from whence it came. It’s all vibrant red fruits and pickled things and maybe some balsamic and maybe all those things had a yacht party in oak. New and used. Like this wine’s soul. — 22 days ago
