Opening a bottle of wine is like reading a letter or watching a photo, but in four dimensions. It's like a time travel. Here we have 1998 in Piedmont captured in a bottle. And it's so beautiful. The flowers and cherries on the nose, the lovely acid and tannins that follows. For a moment, we are there: In Alba, 1998.

Gulpable joy. Among the best Barberas I've had, for sure. Plush, round, yum.

Probably the best Barbera I've ever had. Bright fruit, acres of depth and tremendous finish.

1996 vintage. Earthy and meaty nose but the fruit and acid really show up on the palette. A really interesting wine that completely surprised me. Its drinking beautifully, but I'd drink it sooner than later!

A barbera that drinks like a Barolo from the Nezza subzone. Pretty nice.
