    Winemaker's Notes:

    #66 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012

    The color is a lively and brilliant dark ruby-red. The perfume is fresh and intense with clean scents of wild berries, currants and sour black cherry. A light hint of vanilla and toasted oak. The flavor is warm and robust, full-bodied, pleasant and balanced.

    This Barbera's sensory attributes make it an outstanding accompaniment for imposing first courses and main-course, meats boiled or roasted.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A dark, succulent red, exuding black cherry, blackberry and violet aromas and flavors. Pure and focused, with a long aftertaste of sweet fruit, flowers and spice.

    Was quite impressed with this wine, especially for the price. It was smooth and supple, really silky, with lots of ripe red fruits, good acid, but more fruit-forward than many Barberas. Quite soft.

    Decent Barolo. Not impressive. Very soft to be a Barolo wine. Drink right now. Not good for cellar it.

    Nice drinking Barbera. Overall balance is good and a very enjoyable wine. A little surprised it made the WS Top 100? The price is very good and no complaints.

    Disappointing given it being on WS Top 100 list and 90 point rating. However for $12 it is worth the price. 86 points to my palate.
