Really expressive soured red fruit. Hints of Violet's and an iron-ey overtone. Great stuff.

Intriguing citrus rind notes, floral and red currant. Lithe, bright with fine grained tannin. Beautiful with lunch!

An amazingly smooth Barbera to enjoy - with or without a pairing - a fabulous recommendation by Master Sommelier Bobby Stuckey. After dinner I'm looking to purchase this to enjoy at home.

2009 è un omaggio all'eleganza e alla complessità! Il frutto è maturo ma ancora ricchissimo
2012 un tripudio di freschezza aromatico con anche sfumature di spezie!!
