Lifted aroma of rose, lychee, citrus, and juicy raspberry. Light and fruity.

2013. Damn good juicy with a taut finish. Impeccable balance.

85% brachetto & rest barbera—expected a lighter body but quite medium bodied. Wildflowers & dark cherries on the nose. Quite streamlined in its mouthfeel, no jagged edges: black fruits dominant, and fresh & buoyant. Had this producer years ago, now remember why I liked so much- this has soul, but also the precision (in terms of clarity of flavors) that I seem to find in very good producers.

Light body but plenty of flavor: dark berry stems and frothy pine woods without too much tannin(!!)
