Bolognese and Barbera D’Alba on a dreary Thursday night 👌✅ Wine offers tons of plummy fruit notes balanced with high acidity, black licorice, delicate cedar, anise, oregano, and sage notes to pair with, and complement, the meat sauce. Delizioso! ABV 14.5%. Vintage 2016.

Never had a red that could be described as buttery until now. Buttery and peppery. Weird but good.

High tones black cherry. Little bit of an acetone thing going on but in a pleasant way that gives interest.
