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)

Just an excellent barbera. Deliciously red fruity, but very balanced and still get enough earth and tannins to be quite interesting and enjoyable. Definitely serve on the cooler side, long finish and refreshing acid on the finish.

Pretty on the nose, rosemary, cherries and pebble rocks. On the palate lots of ripe cherries, blueberries as some oregano. Not much mineral here.
