Piedmont Barbera

Bruno Giacosa

Casa Vinicola Asili Riserva Barbaresco 2007

Essence of Nebbiolo. Liqueur-cherry-rose fragrance and flavors with silky, soft tannins. Purity abounds. Long, lasting finish. And in great shape to go many more years. — 12 days ago

Barbera d'Alba 2016

Lovely wine. I was expecting a light wine and it surprisingly had a consistency and appearance of a Cabernet Sauvignon. Earthy with notes of plum and shimeji. Higher alcohol grade invites this wine to a cellar for one or two years more. — a day ago

Cascina 'Tavijn

Bandita Barbera 2013

Probably at its peak, good amount of sour cherries, mineral and medium tannins, perfect with or without food. — 6 days ago

Elena la Luna Barbera d'Alba

Complex nose with cherry, nutmeg, cocoa. All that follows through on the palate along with some juicy acidity and dusty tannins. Really great stuff. — 12 days ago

Cantina Tomaso Gianolio

Superiore Barbera d'Alba 2015

Mad love for this. Cherry. Cherry licorice. Licorice finish. But perfect balance. One of the most delicious wines of the year. Brighter than most superiores. I could drink a case of this... In a night. Had it with chicken with juniper berry sauce. Amazing. In a rational world anyone with space would buy 5 cases a year. Bought from fass selections. — 17 days ago

Bricco Airoli Superiore Barbera d'Alba 2013

The big brother of the La Gamella, this Barbera superiore has a lighter color and more refined and complex nose of violets, baking spices, mint, liquorice and coffee; and higher acids, stronger blueberry and plum fruitiness, and more tertiary aromas from the age - than the simpler sibling. — 10 days ago

Think this is the wine but no bottle present in a 3-wine Piedmont wine flight at the Grove Restaurant, Austin, TX. This 2017 vintage vino "checks the boxes" for a finer Barbera...we drank several of the kind, though not this one, a month ago in Piedmont, Italy. Tasty balanced subtle easy palate worthy of "swirl", delicious medium to deep dark berry flavor, perfect tannins...fine nose, legs...best of the Piedmont flight. Buy again... — 4 days ago

Fides Barbera d'Alba 2016

Never had this Barbera. Delicious. Much bigger than most Barbera. Chunky. Black fruit? Med-full. Ok length but delicious — 4 days ago
