Young, fresh, expressive, full of cherries and violets. Nicely rounded palate, integrated tannins

Gorgeous barbera with aromatic blueberries laid out on a bed of violets and some dried herbs. Good tension. #barbera #foodwine #sandrone

Super beau Barbera d'Alba: fruits cuits, un peu de bois qui lui donne une belle longueur. Juste un peu triste, c'est ma dernière bouteille!!!

A nice dry wine with dark fruit with mild tannins. A good dinner wine.
