Bit of a unicorn 🦄. Pre-Phylloxera vines from 1902! The nose is like smelling a bowl of fresh raspberries. Ridiculously dense and chewy on the palate with black raspberries and raspberry coulis giving way to cracked granite, limestone, dry earth and savory herbs. Nice grip. This needed about an hour decant to really show.

Soft and elegant red raspberries. This is a sick and yes pre-phylloxera 1902 vines!! This is by far the best Barbera I have ever had... sick balance of fruit and terroir.
