This wine was the best in a blind tasting where the rivals were Braida Bricco dell’Uccellone 2006, Pio Cesare Barbera d’Alba 2008 & Vietti La Crena 2004. The jury consisted wine professionals as well as true enthusiasts.
Color: clear, red tone Nose: cherries, light red fruits and sour cream onion Taste: juicy berries, licorice, spices with long lasting and balanced taste.
Dark red color. Opened 30 minutes before drinking and aerated. On the first night, an 85. Tobacco, dark fruits & a little oak on the nose and the palate. Tannins weren't integrated or not enough acidity to support the fruit. A drinkable wine but not worth buying again (or not ready to drink!). On the second night (vacu-vin overnight), this wine was much more balanced. No heat on the finish, the tobacco and black fruits were more apparent and the wine seemed more supple. Needs another 6 months or 1 year to show it's stuff. 89-90 on the second night.
