Piedmont Barbera

Giacomo Conterno

Cascina Francia Barbera d'Alba 2014

Delectable Wine

The 2014 Barbera d'Alba Francia is a surprisingly rich, powerful wine, especially for the year. An exotic mélange of dark cherry, plum, lavender, sage, cloves and graphite builds in the glass. There is a level of demi-glace-like textural richness that is impossible to miss. Intense and virile, the 2014 will drink beautifully for a number of years.

Had a bottle of this recently at Il Centro in Priocca (Alba) after tasting at Conterno. Beautiful wine!


Fiulot Barbera d'Asti 2013

Red fruits and floral. Super approachable. Great with a simple pizza as this stunning DUMBO spot, the location of the new Soho House, overlooking the Manhattan Bridge. — 2 months ago

Il Pozzo

Barbera d'Asti 2007

Love those Barberas. A little fruitier complexity than I am used to. Young and a little more tannic. Monk fish, mushroom risotto. Yum — a day ago

Aves Verduno Barbera d'Alba 2015

2nd day this opened up with cherry compote aromas; fresh, young and lively. Very enjoyable now but will reward with more cellaring. Clean, sweet tannins and well-made. — 4 days ago

Mon Ross Barbera d'Asti 2014

Delicious bottle of wine, especially at this price. Great easily approachable black and dark red fruit, but with enough tannin and structure to keep it interesting. From The Wine Merchant at SF Ferry Building — 4 hours ago

Think Aldo Conterno richness without the oakiness. A complete Barbera homerun, seriously worthy of your attention. Go get it! — 14 days ago

Barbera d'Alba 2011

Gabutti!! Dark fruits and racy acidity...nice finish. One of the best barberas being produced in my opinion...needs a 1.5-2 hour decant at this young age... — 4 days ago

Filatura Barbera d'Alba

A young nebbiolo meant to be drunk young. This wine maker doesn't touch it. In the barely and in your glass. Recommended by K&L in Hollywood and we loved it. — 5 days ago
