Top Notes For
Adriana Fabbro

Gorgeous, polished, silky texture. Oaked (which gives it some mid palate weight) but not overly so. Cherry liqueur with some bay leaf on the finish. Finishes a tad hot and bitter. Barbera is just too light a variety. This is one of the better examples I’ve had and it still struggles to hold the higher alcohol levels (15% per the label—can that be right?) of Piemonte in these recent warm vintages.
