Andrea Bricarello

Tasting: Barbera d’Alba

Earthy but shy nose. Tight concentrated palate. Meaty and savoury with good rustic acidity. Classic and well balanced

Stephen Brook

Tasting: Barbera d’Alba

Very deep red. Excessively oaky nose, but there is still plenty of vibrancy and bracing sour cherry fruit. Medium-bodied, sleek, and concentrated, with admirable freshness and balance. The oak is less prominent on the palate and the essential sweetness of the fruit comes through nicely. Stylish and long.

Ian D'Agata

Tasting: Barbera d’Alba

Deep red. Closed nose hints at dark cherry, loam, ink and almonds. then rich and dense with ripe smooth dark red cherry fruit kept tightly under wraps still by oak. Needs plenty of time, but there’s plenty of fruit to win the battle with the tannins over time.
