Bee awhile since I've had this producer. Why you gotta be so reductive?

A truly superior(e) 2010 Barbera d'Asti, the experience admittedly enhanced by the John Coltrane/Johnny Hartman LP that accompanied it (pasta was also involved)

Tart, full, balanced, moderately acidic but not overly, great wine!

What a great 100% Barbera from Agliano.
DOCG

Dark ruby in color with an inky rim.

Medium bodied, and smooth, with nice long legs.

Nice, fruity nose with blueberries, blackberries, cherries, strawberries, wood, vanilla, licorice and black pepper.

Dry on the palate, and smooth with strawberries, cherries, red currants, earth, blueberries, forest floor, blackberries, spices and peppercorn.

Long finish with full, round tannins.

Really big on the palate with a full mouthfeel. Good now and will mature wonderfully in the next 5 years.

15% alcohol by volume.

Fermentation was done in stainless steel vats, for 15 days. Aged for 12 months in French and Austrian oak barrels.

Light and versatile. A little fruity but not dry at all. Great summer red wine.
