Haven't had wine from this producer in a long time. Bright red fruit in balance with the wood and tannins. Perfect for a tuesday dinner.

Sweet red fruit scented and positively ripe, with clever oak treatment. Not really complex, but honest and more-ish.

Oak. Like, lots of crazy, unbalanced unnecessary oak. And in a barbera d'asti, so, heartbreaking.
