    November 6, 2022 - Dark juicy and delicious with fresh acidity. Will mellow nicely in 1-3 years but enjoyable already l. Slight burnt note not otherwise solid, dark fruit spectrum. No decant needed but it did improve w air time.

    October 15, 2022 - Satsuma plum, blackberry, cherry, tobacco over fine tannins and balanced acidity. This really comes together well but a bit on the rustic side.

    September 2, 2022 - צעיר מדי
    טאני מאוד וקשוח, גם אחרי שעה בדקנטר לא נרגע
    פרי שחור ובשל
    וניל

    January 5, 2022 - Deep ruby color; aromatic with some plummy fruits, a bit of spice (cinnamon?); palate is full bodied, medium acidity, oak is a bit prominent, richer styled, high alcohol (15.5%, shows up a bit too much through the midpalate and finish), fruit fades through the midpalate; finish is short-medium. I can see why it has good reviews as it is a robust, flavorful, oaky version of barbera, but I tend to prefer the more refreshing versions with redder fruits, more acidity, and less oak. 86 for me, and I would not buy again.

    October 24, 2021 - Out for lunch with old friends at a pub with an uncommonly well-priced good quality wine list. We ended up having two of these beauties! This is a wine you’d want for Christmas, beautiful, full, spiced and pine cone fresh. I love Barbera but can’t think of any other bottling I’d describe as epic! 15.5% with masculine heft but a dancer’s spritely gait.
    Always hard to separate the qualities of a great bottle when you’re in a setting that also stirs your emotions but for today this stands as my favourite ever Barbera! Just stunning.
    Agree with the comment below that this is a more exciting Barbera than Giacomo Conterno’s Francia.
