Andrea Bricarello

Tasting: Barbera d’Alba

Freshly cracked pepper intertwined with rich ripe wild red fruits. Smoked bacon notes followed by earthy and mineral aromas. a rich but elegant wine.

Tasting: Barbera d’Alba

Opaque red. The nose is quite cooked and lacks freshness. Soft and rounded, with decent acidity but nonetheless a slack texture and torrefied notes from the oak. Overripe and over-oaked, and could easily become fatiguing. Quite long, with a rather jammy finish.

Ian D'Agata

Tasting: Barbera d’Alba

Deep ruby-red. Initially reduced nose improves with air to show brooding ripe black fruit and spice aromas and flavours. Finishes sweet and ripe with peppery slightly drying tannins. Made in a ripe style, I-m not sure the nose will appeal to everyone. Decant at least a couple of hours ahead..
