One of the nicer, more acid-driven and energetic Barberas I've had today.

Purple floral and spice on the nose. Blackberries, blueberries, creamy raspberries, cherries, a hint of dark chocolate, oak and a semi dry purple floral finish.

A more modern, rich and velvety Barbera with ripe blueberries and creamy raspberries. Rich, velvety structure with nice balance, juicy acidity and plush, velvety tannins. Almost syrupy on the palate. A bit too rich & overdone for my taste, and missing a sense of authenticity. But technically very well done.
