Wine Description

(2010 Vintage) Purple and plum hues. On the nose, notes of sweet tobacco, leather, spice and dried fruit. Flavors of dried red and black cherries, and more leather and spice. In the mouth, super fine grained tannins and an umami tinged deliciousness on the finish.

(2010 Vintage) This Barbera del Monferrato is obtained from a near-late harvest. The suggestions of spice from the interaction between the wine and the wood add to the depth of Barbera and integrate with the fruity raspberry taste of Freisa to give a great wine with a harmoniously balanced structure and a long, complex finish.
