  • Italian night @ Stappato (Enoteca Stappato, Leuven (Belgium)): Big wine. Large dosage of superripe tannines. Black cherry, coffee, sweet tobacco, wonderful oak, vanillin. This was my third time for this wine, and it was the best, and youngest, appearance so far.

  • Dark ruby red, black core. Gorgeous, balanced and distinguished on the nose. At first the palate is teased and aroused with that wonderfully fresh and crunchy acidity of black cherries and blueberries. It also has a mystique balsamic, oriental, smoky component that I find quite intriguing. Jummy creamy wood, vanillapods, juicy and sappy, very floral, too. There's lilac and roses. Was afraid that this would be kind of an oak monster, but - to be honest - the wood foundation is very luxurious, well integrated and perfectly dosed. Drink now or in 5 years. Easily the best Barbera I ever had. Although I have serious doubts about the pricepoint, it definately delivers... 18-18.5/20
