Interesting interpretation of Barbera. This almost comes across astringent. Incredibly tart with a characteristic that recalls biting into a Granny Smith Apple. I wonder if they had challenges getting to full ripeness? It is dark fruited with seemingly little tannin. Acid is elevated for sure. Finish seems clipped however. This really needs food to fully appreciate.

A beautiful purple color, cherry and blackberry fruit notes but some savory and spicy notes, lots of acid and fruitiness and mild tannins that linger. Explore Slovenia class.

Dry, good tannins, hint of Berries, hint of pepper, full body good mouth feel.
