Andrea Bricarello

Tasting: Barbera d’Alba

Very ripe and intense with hints of menthol on the nose. wet leather and freshly cracked pepper. Rich and generous on the palate with lots of colourful spices and cherry jam. Vibrant and jolly, it’s a wine that shows a rustic side when needed but also a soft side when wanted.

Stephen Brook

Tasting: Barbera d’Alba

Deep plum/ruby. Fragrant almost exotic fruits nose of some intensity. Ripe round and juicy with fresh acidity and fair length. Cherry and aniseed. Distinctive.

Ian D'Agata

Tasting: Barbera d’Alba

Bright dark ruby. Very pure floral, blackcurrant and plum aromas. Then sweet and suave with ripe but not over the top plum and blackberry jam flavours. Not a blockbuster, this finishes softly with juicy charm.
