Winemaker’s Notes: A true Barbera specialist, the family making this lush red wines prides themselves on their generations worth of experience cultivating their pristine vineyards in the heart of Piedmont in Northwestern Italy, in the shadow of Mont Blanc. With an intense purple hue, this wine bursts with a juicy, mouthwatering bouquet of plum and cherry with hints of baking spice. Silky on the palate, finishing in ripe, velvety, sweet fruits, this wine will pair perfectly with any meal, from antipasti, to pizza, to pasta, to grilled meats. A rich, satisfying glass sure to please any crowd, you’ll be hard pressed to drink just one glass!
“This shows fine depth and balance, revealing black cherry and blackberry notes on a supple texture. Hints of citrus and bitter almond appear on the lingering finish. Smart Buy.” 90 points Wine Spectator
