Community Tasting Notes 28

  • Momus99 Does not like this wine:

    November 10, 2016 - Declining to give a rating since there may be bottle variation, but this one was really just "meh". Decanted 30min. Lots of acidity but no richness to balance the acidity. Very mute on nose and palate. Also declining to rate since this may just be what Barbera is like (since I've had similar reactions to other Barbera d'Alba's) so this may just be a matter of my taste rather than the quality of the wine.

    March 27, 2016 - Easter Sunday Italian...pleasant!

    March 9, 2016 - The fourth of six bottles, and I seem to like this more each time. Not overly complex, but paired beautifully with Eleni's Pasta sauce, perhaps in part due to the high acidity.

    February 10, 2016 - Pleasant with dark fruits, dried herbs/flowers, a bit big at 14.5% but balanced by integrated medium acidity/tannins.

  • easttide Likes this wine: (89 points)

    January 4, 2016 - Enjoyable with pasta and gravy, or alone. Not as enjoyable while watching the Patriots lose to the Dolphins.
