I was expecting something better: bitter and over-oaky... The fruit is gone...

Young but still a very pleasant and relatively balanced food pairing wine for meat and appropriate pasta dishes. Rich fruit and good mouth feel and a moderately long finish.

Lovely Langhe from 2006! Tar and plum up front with fantastic acidity and silky tannins. Paired very nicely with my veal Saltimboca !

Nose on open was alcohol. Got me worried. But for no need! Wow this was great. Nose eventually morphed into stone and gravel with a touch of raspberry. Elegant flavor throughout. Dark rich fruit and ripe tannins. Figs. Great tension with the acidity I expect from a Barbera. Black tea grippiness. What a blend. Highly recommend despite present alcohol that could have been integrated a touch better or benefitted from being a touch lower. Nbd though and not a hot burner.

Very Dark and tannic for a nebbiolo-barbera blend - almost black with no signs maturing...
good black fruit, tobacco and licorice ...
Good buy - about 15 euro a bottle
