Drank 7/5/19.

Overripe cherry and leather scents, yield to ripe red cherry, earth, and leather flavors. This feels a touch hot (14.5% alcohol) and ripe. Medium plus tannins back lingering, ripe, red cherry fruit on the finish.

2/22/6/3/4 + 50 = 87 pts.

Purchased at Costco for around $13. Not bad, but go with the Renato Ratti bottling for around $2 more.

Blueberry, cherry, earth, licorice, tea, spice, and everything nice. Great Barbera!

Lovely little wine — blueberries, crushed flowers, and black leather. Nice QPR
