Barbera d'Alba 2016

Medium-bodied, relatively elegant Barbera showing dark fruit, lots of spices and herbs and quite a serious, brooding finish, substantial and persistent. — 8 days ago

Vignota Barbera d'Alba 2019

A burger tames the youthful qualities of this quite nicely. Better in 3-5 years. — 3 days ago

Love it. Everything working together just the way it’s supposed to. Had with salumi and baked Brie. — 9 days ago

Serralunga d'Alba Barolo Nebbiolo

2021/4. This was a good, traditional Barolo - bitter cherry and tar. A little air helped it come together and balance out, but to me (a person who finds recent traditional wines these days to be very enjoyable on release), it was nice now. — 2 days ago


Dü Gir Barbera d'Alba 2018

Dark ruby in color with a red/purple rim.

Strong fruity nose of blueberries, sweet raspberries, cherries, licorice, light oak, vanilla, earth, herbs, spices, dark chocolates, tobacco and black pepper.

Full bodied with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with black currants, black cherries, sweet raspberries, tobacco, light oak, vanilla, earth, licorice, spices, herbs, chocolates, peppercorn and light vegetables.

Short finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.

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.

89 points.

Gabutti Barbera d'Alba 2015

Selected from the HSWM shelf to accompany the bevy of wines from Piemonte already at the table. I’ve been a huge fan of Cappellano’s Barbera d'Alba in the past and this certainly impressed, as I expected it would. It worked really well with the hangar steak but it was holding something back. We took the remaining half of the bottle home and the real fireworks show came on Day 2 paired with some homemade Bolognese that I made with some ground elk. Undergrowth, dark fruit, figs, dark tilled earth, cumin, spiced meat and what fantastic acid!! Tannins seem to be medium. Sediment appears to be medium plus…lol…there’s a lot. Yes, the price is steep for a "modest" Barbera but when you consider the overall quality and satisfaction, this absolutely delivers and absolutely worth it. — 22 days ago

Barbera d'Alba 2018

Black cherry nose... On the palate, it's more cherry, graphite, dried fruit, leather. Great concentration and a long finish. Very nice. — 17 days ago

Barturot Dolcetto d'Alba 2014

If hygge manifested itself as a wine it would be Dolcetto, and this great example of Dolcetto exudes hygge. Delayed posting from a few weeks back. — 12 days ago

Rich, concentrated core of fruit, and the elevage imprint is still excessive for me. — 11 days ago
