Barbera

Giuseppe Rinaldi

Barbera d'Alba 1989

Dark intense purple color. On the nose a meaty, plummy, gnarly beast. Intense savory notes with dried herbs, a hint of cornas in character style, and feral blue stuff. Astonishing depth and purity of fruit at the front given its age. I’ve never had a barbera of this intensity and style before. Unfortunately in the palate it is a short treat and relatively simple, though plush. Not much finish on this. A great surprise though... — 11 days ago

A pleasant Nebbiolo with the bold flavors at Moody Rooster, shared with the cutest couple ever who evacuated from the unhealthy air of Berkeley! — 3 days ago

Barbera d'Alba

Scents of rose petals and bramble on open. Red plum, cigar box, spice. Silky smooth with medium tannins and a bit of tar on the finish. Really nice after being open a few hours and will age well. — 12 days ago

Barbera d' Alba Superiore 2015

Very nice barbera! Punches quite above its weight - would love to try the Barolo or barbaresco. Quite classic and old school with lots of earth and rusticity but still accessible now with a decent amount of air and a slight chill. — 3 days ago

More on the savoury side. Dark fruits. A little spice. Medium body. Medium tannins.
Delicious on it's own or with food.

Fantastic every day drinker. Great with pork or lamb. Good spice and fruit. Lush tannins. I’d buy this by the case. — 6 hours ago

Barbera d'Asti 2016

Lots of acid. Cranberry, unripe cherry, bell pepper, tobacco, some ballpoint pen. A little bitter? Was open for a while but maybe needed more air, mellowed out over dinner but still... From Provincetown liquor store. — 8 hours ago

Roagna

Barbera d'Alba 2010

I love a good Barbera and this is that. Great depth and nuance, the 2010 Roagna is a sophisticated wine that is intensely food friendly. Dark cherry, tar, mint and licorice combine. It's a stunner and was made even better when paired with a gorgeous risotto lovingly prepared by dear friends. — 25 days ago

La Stoppa

Barbera della Stoppa 2009

Overripe strawberry, canned red plums, floral, caramalized sugars. Damn. A touch hot, but does not minimize sweetness + acidity — 3 days ago
