Casaret Langhe Barbera 2017

Hoping this wasn't expensive. Generally medium-bodied bright fruit up front, with a TBD mid (dinner interrupted), and a lively, tart finish. Seems to be opening into a rounder experience, with less punch at the end. Lovely, overall. — 6 days ago

Bricco della Bigotta Barbera d'Asti 2016

Meno stratosferico del bricco dell.uccellone ma comunque straordinario. Forse meritava un po'piú di tempo in bottiglia. Piú acido e meno rotondo. Note piú scure. — 21 hours ago

Giacomo Conterno

Vigna Francia Barbera d'Alba 2015

The nose reminded me of walking thru the perfume aisle of a major department store. Mesmerizing scents of lavender, flowers and black cherry. The palate has extreme power but is very well balanced. Very tightly wound but there is no doubting that the structure will loosen up and provide many years of great drinking. — 17 days ago

Oddero

Barbera d'Alba 2015

2015 is a lush, juicy, fuller vintage. A few days (4) in an opened bottle allowed the wine to breath nicely. Nose of earth (dirt), mushroom, black pepper, a touch of vanilla and cinnamon, a dirty leather, and dark red fruit (not sweet). The mouth feel is juicy with still punchy tannins and acidity. There’s more of a tart plum with cinnamon, mushroom and that dirt quality again. Pretty solid stuff. Can definitely use age. — 5 days ago

Gianni Doglia

Roberto Ferraris

I Suôrí Barbera d'Asti 2017

This train is off the tracks! Big, rich, pure and unapologetic Barbera of the highest order. Hot silica, raspberries and that incisive, pure thing that great Piemontese wines always show. — 7 days ago
