Right now I rated it a 9.0 but maybe if I had let it open up it would have a higher rate. This came highly recommended from the guy at the wine store. It's a full bodied wine with a deep red color. Cherry and raspberry on the nose. Slightly tannic and acidic.

Quite acidic at first but after a few bites of spicy pepperoni pizza with it it toned down quite a bit. It was highly recommended by the guy at the wine store.

Barbera d'Asti extraordinaire! Break out the flipping funk!! Wow! Almond candy paste wrapped in a horse blanket! This ain't nasty brett, but it could be a touch due to the slight tingle to the mouthfeel. Charcoal soaked in cherry jam. But no edginess, just blackberry extract without any threat of over-indulgence. All the giant continents of tastes somehow fit together jigsaw style, to create a beefy Pangea.
