Expert Reviews
  • Wine & Spirits
    (From 2007 Vintage) Good deep red. Wild aromas of roasted red fruits, coffee, chocolate, animal fur and minerals, plus a whiff of nutty oak. Broad, rich and round if a bit sauvage, with red fruit, smoke, earth, leather and mineral flavors saturating the palate. This solid and somewhat chocolatey barbera comes virtually entirely from "Barolo soils" in La Morra, Serralunga, Monforte d'Alba and Castiglione Falletto. No shortage of acidity on the back.
