The 2017 Barbera d'Alba is a joyous wine that is sure to put a smile on readers' faces. Pliant, supple and full of character, the 2017 offers superb density and tons of pure deliciousness. Sweet dark cherry, plum, mocha and sweet spice are pushed forward in this engaging, arrestingly beautiful Barbera. Best of all, the 2017 is a superb value. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, March 2020)

Destined and triple sorted. Stainless fermentation. Food friendly and fruit forward without being over extracted.

Still deep purple. Nose is a bit closed. Little gassy on palate entry. With decant shows generous, fleshy textured dark berry atoms and flavors. More simple that previous bottles.

Birds on the label, put it on my table. This is all you want in a barbera.

Vajra's 2020 Barbera d'Alba is juicy, vibrant and absolutely delicious. Racy red/purplish berry fruit, spice, rose petal and mint are all kicked up in a tasty, impeccable Barbera that delivers the goods, big time. $22.00 (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, November 2021)

Lots of dark red fruit, verging on a smidge of raisin. Quite forward and delicious. Draws you in with great mouthfeel and refreshing acid. Excellent quality for the price - just a fun one.
