Творог, биттер, клей, московская плюшка, кислая вишня, правильная ваниль, шоколадная стружка, калина, сливовое варенье, мебель. Высокая кислотность, крепкие танины.
A lot going on, но слажено, мягко, статно, сдержано не смотря на дуб. Надо, конечно, пробовать более старые винтажи.

My favorite Barbera from Piedmonte, this new vintage is fantastic, with power from Serralunga soil, a very complex expression of spices, cherries, dark fruits and even some balsamic notes, menthol...wow🍷
