Jolie nez de cerises, un peu serrez en bouche, en peu jeune mais fin.

Acidity and French oak is intrusive, not enough local character. It does have dimensionality and polish, thanks to the expert farming and winemaking skill. Good wine but seems indifferent and little complacent.

Come fai a non amare La Barbera d'Alba?! Equilibrio e morbidezza.

An awesome, elegant and light bodied selection. Definitely the kind of wine to please the table with over a nice meal. Good red fruits with some earthy undertones.
