Wine Description

This is soft and layered on entry with tons of sweet fruit. Good acidity and soft tannins are subsumed in the fruit though with time one can sense the tannins, gentle though they seem, are a touch angular. - Snooth

    Made with 100% Barbera, this wine is a deep ruby red colour with violet nuances. It is complex, intense bouquet of blackberries, plums, fruit jam and spices. Its round, harmonious, complex palate is full and ripe but fresh and tasty at the same time. A remarkably classy wine endowed with finesse. Excellent with soups and pasta courses, red and white roasted meats, game and strong cheeses.
