Vintage 2001 - older wine but still alive and kicking, smells like if you walk on a farm, spicy, very high acidity, too much cedar/wood in smell

Dark red purple. Overwhelming nose with blackfruit but also some forrest and wood. Ridiculous PQR as we only payd 15 euro’s for it. No need to keep it any longer. Just enjoy!

Loved this wine! Intriguing nuances which changed with every sniff or sip. Dusty cherries and mouldy notes predominate. More full bodied than expected. 17.5+

Bigger than I expected for a Barbera. Cherry notes with a hint of cinnamon. Medium to full on palate. Could have been new world. Next in a year. 17.
