    November 21, 2015 - Fantastic. Rich, powerful wine. Tannin still evident. This bottle felt like it could go another 5 years

    September 26, 2015 - rubino impenetrabile già evoluto su riflessi granato-violacei, naso prepotente e molto complesso di ogni tipo di frutto maturo, perfino mela rossa, oltre a ciliegie profumatissime, poi salamoia, rosmarino, muschio, spezie dolci, dopo due ore aperto in una stanza è riuscito a espandere il suo profumo ovunque; sorso di un equilibrio impressionante, fresco e pieno, tannino guizzante ma morbido, lunghezza buona ma non quanto ci si aspetterebbe, difficile immaginare una barbera tanto meglio di questa

    January 3, 2015 - I am not a huge Barbera fan and this was an experiment with a higher end Barbera which proves a point for me. If you take good Barbera fruit and age in Oak for long enough time, then oak will smooth out rough edges typically found in a varietal. If there is one dominant flavor in the profile, it is the oak, but it works the wonder for the grapes and all together wine comes together as pretty good with flavorts of cedar, dried currants - no sweetness, sour cherry, vanilla and nutmeg.
    Bottle was slightly corked.

    April 29, 2014 - Is this finally starting to come around? My last bottle though, poured through an aeration gizmo in some attempt to wake the wine up.

    Seville oranges, roses, dust and cedar. Massively sour palate, but just about in balance. Leather and sour cherries. Dry, tannic finish. Rather good! Some will like this more than me too (89-90)
