Andrea Bricarello

Tasting: Barbera d’Alba

Very subtle dark forest fruits. Spicy and tight. a bit sour towards the end. Brisk acidity and rustic aftertaste

Stephen Brook

Tasting: Barbera d’Alba

Deep red. Lively cherry and red-fruits nose. Bright, fresh, has precision and clarity rather than flesh and power, but it’s stylish and has charm. It has a welcome lightness of touch and good length.

Ian D'Agata

Tasting: Barbera d’Alba

Dark red. Monolithic aromas and flavours of red cherry and flowers, but this could use more intensity and delineation. A little flat at the back and very tannic and drying at the end.
