Ronco Malo is a Barbera, but it's more than a typical Barbera...more weight, more breeding. This bottle was consistent with previous ones.

Nothing complicated but a pleasant barbera. Has a tension and zing to it.

2011. Fresh fruit, gentle tannins, good acid, and a nice minerality.

2010 vintage - Fig, dark fruit, cola flavors wrap a core of clay. Very balanced except a little heat

Super funky but looking good at this age, still fresh but focused and savoury.
