Moderate to low intensity and complexity on nose. Palate showed ripe red and black fruit with good density. Slight cooked note. Medium character. Edgy structure and lacked balance. Short finish. #sandrone #barbera #ctbucklinwine

Scents of rose petals and bramble on open. Red plum, cigar box, spice. Silky smooth with medium tannins and a bit of tar on the finish. Really nice after being open a few hours and will age well.

Smooth, silky, and full of fruit. Solid and will be even better in 10 years.

Had at lunch in stresa. Still young and could use some aging. Pairs well with pasta, tartare, and meats.
