Dense purple color. Expressive nose w black fruits, plums and a hint of baking spice. Impeccable balance in the mouth. Delicious. Better day one than day 2-3...

Nuanced, elegant, and soulful. Barbera like this always reminds me of how awesome this wine can be. Black cherry, black raspberry, graphite, potpourri, violets, hay and spice (pretty much what the bottle says). Structurally balanced but shows lots of finesse.

Nicely tuned for the vintage with cherry, plum, tobacco and smoke. Drink or hold
