    Winemaker's Notes:

    Intense red, with a bouquet of ripe fruit and an undercurrent of spices, such as pepper. Flavorful, pleasing and elegant with good persistence.

    This is a wine suited for first courses and red meats.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Smart Buy! Rich and succulent, sporting black cherry, blackberry and licorice flavors. This is muscular and laced with tannins, lending a slight bitterness now. But it’s full of sweet fruit, so allow a year or so. Best from 2013 through 2018. 2,500 cases imported.

    Wonderful Barbera, a great value at this price. Particularly appreciated since my parents were born in the Asti region and we have visited relatives in the area.

    Perhaps I opened it too young or perhaps I should have aerated it, but no matter how hard I tried I could not get over the bitterness. An overly tannic and acidic mouth made me cringe with every sip. Could barely make out the fruit. I tried it again after 20 minutes and it was no better. A powerful and intense experience, but not in the good way.
