Chocolaty and rich. Well structured, high altitude Barbera. Benefits from the diurnal swing, keeping the acids in check. A modern style done well.

Bright ruby, medium minus (2/5) concentration and staining, jammy cranberry, raspberry, blueberry, and mulberry. Some oak influence: smoke, nutmeg. Medium plus minerality: stones. Medium acidity, diminished tannin, medium (+) body.

Nice offering of Barbera from CA. Another good recommendation from folks at Wine Market. Paired nicely with manicotti.

Good Barbera. Medium bodied with a fruit forward nose. Enough tannins to notice them, opened up well.
