Giovanni Almondo

Valbianchera Barbera d'Alba 2016

Very much in the vein of the 2015: black cherry, raspberry, blackberry...but a bit fresher and more chiseled. Not a tour-de-force, but more classically Barbera. Satisfying and complete. #almondo #barberadalba — 2 years ago

Marchesi di Barolo

Ruvei Barbera d'Alba

This Italian barbera has a pale garnet color. On the nose is vanilla, sour cherry & plum. Velvety mouth feel and a smooth finish. #barberadalba #barolo #ruvei #italianwines — 4 years ago

Barbera d'Alba 2013


Deep color. Heavy extraction and tannin. Strangely green parsley or basil. While on that palate it seems riper. Big tannins. #barberadalba #italianwines — 4 years ago

Valbianchera Barbera d'Alba 2015

Black fruits, new oak, star anise, vanilla bean. Explosive; medicinal concentration and the kind of finish that only comes from century-old vines. Extraordinary. #almondo #barberadalba — 3 years ago
