Crushed wild berries, violets, incense and sweet spices lift up from the 2016 Barrua. It is silky in texture with a polished display of red and black fruits, well balanced by tactile mineral notes that form toward the close. Hints of fine tannin linger throughout the pretty, purple-tinged finale. The 2016 could use another year or two to flesh out a bit, but I expect that it will always be a more lifted and leaner expression of Barrua. This is a blend of 70% Carignan, 10% Syrah, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc. (Eric Guido, Vinous, March 2021)

Dry, but amazing! Subtle aftertaste.

This is a very good modern style Italian. The nose is really fragrant, almost Napa like with plenty of dark, sweet fruit blended with lavender, vanilla and light oak. Palate is smooth and rounded with minimal acidity and a nice long slightly sweet and smokey finish, there is also a little licorice in here. Alcohol is on the high side but this is well worth trying, I really enjoyed it.
