  • This is a bit different from other Barberas I have tried. It is not as fruity as most but it has a darker, drier quality to it. More pronounced oak with leather and tobacco notes. It is a very nicely rounded wine with medium finish that matches the initial taste. I had it with marieke gouda cheese, hummus and love beets and then later with a salad with white balsamic and olive oil dressing It was really good with the chocolate I had for dessert also. I got it on sale at Surdyks for 14.99. Well worth it!

  • Tasted in wine bar in Cincy.
    Med ruby at core, barely fading to rim.
    Nose shows black cherry fruit, nice rocky minerality, a hint of kirsch and tea. Elegant, refined.
    Palate reveals a dry wine, med in body and alcohol, with med intensity flavors of blackberry, leather, rocks, and slight eucalyptus (in a very nice way). The acidity is refreshing med intensity, keeping this Barbera lively but not overdone in any way. Med length finish repeats notes from the palate.
    This is a very good quality Barbera, done in a style I appreciate, a bit backward and more feminine fruit, but with lush mouthfeel and great acidity. Very nice with food. Not a buy for me at $36/btl in the wine bar, but great if online at $15. Search it out.

  • Tea-like on the nose, which is deceiving on the mouth. Spicier than expected. Dig it as a restaurant purchase.

  • First bottle was not very good- 78 at best. Second bottle was much improved. More typical of the excellent 2009 vintage.
