A deep ruby red hue. Intense with notes of violet and maraschino cherries. Rich middle notes are nostalgic of dates and figs. The palate is powerful and fresh. With notes of white pepper and chocolate. It is balanced with a persistent finish.
Pairs well with Carne Cruda, BBQ, and Pasta w/ Sage & Butter.
Wine Enthusiast 90 - Fragrant and fresh, this has classic varietal aromas of dark-skinned berry, baking spice and blue flower. On the savory palate, bright acidity and smooth tannins accompany flavors of Marasca cherry, raspberry and white pepper. Enjoy through 2023.
James Suckling 90 - Whereas the other bottling from this producer has all the hallmarks of a blockbuster style, this Barbera d’Asti couldn’t be more different. It trades in vibrant, lightly fragrant morello cherries and raspberries. It’s soft and round, but with zesty acidity and ends zippy and citrusy.
