Cloudy with dark brick rim, blackberry, raisin, cinnamon, nutmeg, slightly licorice, savory dried herbs and hint of prosciutto. Med plus to high acidity, med tannin, med plus alcohol. Let it breathe a good 20 min. Could hold for another 5 years.

Lovely wine. I couldn't stop wondering how far lost I would have been if trying to call it blind. Nebbiolo nose, fruity aged Barbera palate.

A very drinkable Barbera from Monferrato, floral and juicy with good acidity. Everything is well balanced. To try.

Tasty and smooth. A solid wine that everyone seemed to enjoy but no one really spoke up about.

This is stunning, give it time to open, and layers of floral, berries, earthy aromas dance on your palate and nose. Great to experience Barbera with some age!
