Pic #4. 2015 Andrea Oberto ‘Giada’ Barbera d’Alba. Offered a deep ruby hue, with a bouquet of aromas including dark red fruit, vanillin, and ambrosial notes, the texture was soft on the palate. This was paired so well with the tortellini photographed on the prior picture, 3.

Black cherry and violets commingle with red cherry lavender and raspberry in a clean, and enticing nose of fruit and flower. Blueberry, blackberry and cassis are extras, but this is not the fruit bomb the description conjures. There is something light, sunny and natural about the whole; wisps of sweet tobacco and vanilla blossom undulate on a forest and mushroom motif that feels springy, panoramic and breezy. The palate boasts dried cranberries, tangy raspberry and plump black cherry. Thyme a cinnamon dusting and the aforementioned tobacco, now a fine, smoky cigar. This one is gorgeous, and a testament to the estate. Ripe and juicy, but the oak is in check. Bravo! .

I’m bucking the review trend here and saying once this wine is allowed to breathe, there’s lovely Italian #barbera spice, wild cherry fruit and tannins with a firm but polished grip. — 7 months ago
