This Barbara still has good fruits on nose and palate, slight tannins and good acidity but not that reflux type! Coming from Serralunga it is so balanced after 7 years!! Probably the best Barbara I have ever had!!!

When I want the complexity of Barolo/Barbaresco and the approachability of Barbera this is where I constantly find myself turning. Textbook precision

A great Barbera but its intense sweetness is controversial, even though showing an obvious producer signature. Youthful so better hold a few years before pulling the trigger. 92+

Deep but very elegant,silky, feminine aromas of dsrk fig, licorice, lavender on the nose. Med body, med plus acid, super delicate, smooth texture with hint of mushroom and bitterness on the end(just between brett and earthy character)...savory barbera need some food, tajarin, fat salmon sushi can be great. 14% abv.
