1997 Renato Ratti Barbera d'Alba Torriglione
International style Barbera, from good Torriglione vineyard (located near the prestigious "Rocche" vineyard in La Morra). The wine is structured and rich, with a pleasing and harmonious perfume. A full bodied Barbera with an excellent balance between acidity and tannin. It can be cellared for 8 to 12 years (depending on the vintage).
