    January 12, 2017 - Very good and satisfying. Some bottle funk initially then it builds becoming expressive with blackberry syrup then dark cherries, smoke and plums. Structure comes out with time and it tightens up a bit. Very impressive wine and should keep for a long time, but so nice now with pasta, pecorino and guanicale. It improved over two days vacuum sealed in the fridge

    December 19, 2015 - Red ruby color , fruit on the nose , spicies , full bodied , very balanced between acidity and sapidity, just the dusty tannins doesn't let to that this is a great Barbera

    December 19, 2015 - red ruby color and consistent
    fruity nose with some oaky scent
    in the mouth is full bodied, cherry and blueberry, fresh, rather strong tannis
    balanced and armonic, rather long finish
    it can improve by keeping it some years in the cellar
