La Torricella

Andrea Bricarello

Tasting: Barbera d’Alba

Ethereal, with big concentrated fruit core. Fruits is a bit shy with dry plums. lack of freshness and elegance. dry stewed fruits on the aftertaste

Stephen Brook

Tasting: Barbera d’Alba

Very deep ruby-red. Sweet fleshy black cherry nose, yet smells more like Merlot than Barbera. Broad, rounded, and juicy, with ample sweet fruit but rather modest acidity. A pretty wine but lacks typicity and persistence. Medium length.

Ian D'Agata

Tasting: Barbera d’Alba

Bright red. Deep, pure aromas of red cherry ripe plums and sweet spices. Then smooth and dense, with pure red fruit, sweet spices, vanilla and fresh herb flavours that persist nicely. Very serious, refined wine.
