Love this recommendation from jack. Fresh red fruits on nose. Bright acidity. Delicious.

We don't usually think of aging Barbera. This 2004 was redolent of rose petal, truffle and tea, still vibrant and juicy, going places. Wow.

Excellent, a lighter bodied red that still retains the character and depth of flavor as its bigger cousins. Has aged very well, although I don't think it has much more to go. Drink now.

2004. Surprising for a Barbera. Yes, it had acidity, but the acidity had mellowed over the years. Less fruity than a typical Barbera and with more earthiness. Strong with the Funghi pizza at Marta and with the Rabbit Meatballs. Great suggestion by Brian (one of the somms). Also, a good deal: Delectable says the retail price is around $65 for current release and $50 for the 2004. List price at Marta was only $72!

Wonderful! Complex flavors. Sediment, but avoidable with careful pouring. Earthy, leathery, with distinct blackberry notes. 👍👍

2004 barbera. Dark fruit, red and black fruit, earthy, tannins., tobacco, licorice on the nose. Fruit more tart than expected, but also dried, chewy tannins, medium to medium plus acidity. Great value.

Mocha Carob nose that smells it's age. Fell a bit short in the mouth however. Lot of sediment. Probably missed this one by about five years. Interesting none the less.
