Andrea Bricarello

Tasting: Barbera d’Alba

Hint of VA followed by a very spicy nose. lots of concentrated cherry and plum character. Good touch of oak that gives enough complexity. Savoury and well presented. Modern and seductive.

Stephen Brook

Tasting: Barbera d’Alba

Very deep red. Subdued black cherry nose, not conspicuously oaky. Rich, juicy, concentrated, with a svelte texture and some spice from the oak. Livelier than the nose and has a piquant finish with just a trace of boiled sweets. Should improve with more bottle age. Quite long.

Ian D'Agata

Tasting: Barbera d’Alba

Bright red. very overripe aromas of red fruit lack charm and discretion. Then less showy on the palate but with drying tannins and hints of orange peel at the back.
