Andrea Bricarello

Tasting: Barbera d’Alba

Tannic and intense with little fruits to support the wine. Stewed plums and cherry jam. Brisk acidity and short on the finish

Stephen Brook

Tasting: Barbera d’Alba

Very deep red. Muted nose, with a lot of oak glowering in the background. Rich, suave, concentrated, very tannic but not harsh, and the acidity contributes spice and vigour. Quite peppery and has good length, if a rather tarry finish.

Ian D'Agata

Tasting: Barbera d’Alba

Deep ruby. Brooding nose of red cherry almond flowers and violets. Then rich and suave with good definition to the bright red fruit flavours but plenty of oak too. Needs time.
