    February 4, 2016 - Pretty pleasant at this stage of its development. The acidity is a bit pronounced but I find that's often the case with Barberas. Pretty jammy, nice fruit, incisive and lively, a bit tart. Definitely more of a food wine vs. something to have by itself.

    August 25, 2015 - Tart cherries, so fresh! With sweet notes. Deep. Great. Taste: even some tannins, Cherries, balanced, good nice acid. So juicy, so good.

    December 12, 2014 - Blev lite överraskad när jag först sippade på denna mogna barbera, då den uppvisade rätt tydlig lyxig ek. Men efter att googlat och sett att den lagrats på 50% ny fransk ek föll saker på plats. Eken är som sagt rätt lyxigt och angenäm. Att lägga till det finns mängder av frukt, främst volatila körsbär och hallon. Rätt så bra balans också, med härlig italiensk syra och snälla men tydliga tanniner. Alkoholen är hög, men det känns inte nämnvärt. För 149kr är detta väldigt prisvärt och gott. 89-91/100.


    Elegant new french oak, lushious volatile dark cherries and rasberries. Good balance at a very good price.

    October 10, 2014 - Deep garnet color.

    Developing nose with black fruit, oak, spices and violets. I know that Clerico is considered a modern producer and this wine has seen 100% french oak, 50% new and 50% old, but this has to much oak. Or the wine doesn't have the fruit to balance the oak.

    Dry, oaky, woody and some black fruit and spice on the palate. Lacking the finesse and delicacy that some Barberas can offer. Drink now.

    October 25, 2011 - Deep ruby with some purple. Medium nose of cherries, red berries, some chocolate, linol or acetone (sic), fully developed. Dry, very high acidity, dry tannins, high warm alcohol, medium(+) body, full of red fruits, berries, sour cherry, dry white pepper. Medium (+) austere finish. Despite well-defined structure, the wine does lack balance, acidity is too dominant and harsh, tannins are not integrated and turn puckering. Works well with fatty grilled food at busy dinner tables. Unripe fruit?
