If you know, you know. I put this in the โ€œnatty bruiserโ€ category - high alcohol, huge extract, and gobs of Brett and VA. Still totally enjoyable with the right food. La Stoppaโ€™s back vintage Barberas are great deals (this was a touch over $30 when purchased 2 years ago), but for my money Iโ€™ll be reaching for their Trebbiolo which dials everything back while still having similar fruit profile and deliciousness.

Overripe strawberry, canned red plums, floral, caramalized sugars. Damn. A touch hot, but does not minimize sweetness + acidity

Ton of Brett in here. Had a smoky thing going on at the back end. Lot of fruit still and acidity to match. Just funky and weird but I liked it. Pretty cool wine.
