Love aged Barbera from Asti. Vietti’s 2001 La Crena is deep, dense and explosive, with many years of fine drinking ahead....

Dark blueberry fruit with nice acidity
Balanced tannins with nice peppers on the palate

Mysterious label. Rose like red flower aroma. Concentrated. Spicy. Good match with Chinese cuisine. @3200, ShanHaiLou, 190503

Proof that old vine Barbera from the Nizza sub zone can be built for the ages. 15 years to go but vibrant and full of fresh acidity
