Not like any other barbera. Like a boxer in ballet flats. Underripe dark fruits, plums esp, but in a light crisp crunchy package. Do I sense a bit of VA? Such a great food wine.

Perfect cure to a rainy day in the Langhe. This is Barbera on a completely different level. Hedonistically pleasurable, but I want to check back in 5 years.
