Sergio Barale

Andrea Bricarello

Tasting: Barbera d’Alba

Leather with sweet tobacco box. Very soft and elegant. Plums and cherry notes supported by a cranberry and raspberries acidity.

Stephen Brook

Tasting: Barbera d’Alba

Very deep red. Sweet oaky nose, toasty but one-dimensional. Medium-bodied, quite concentrated, fleshy and svelte, with good underlying acidity that gives persistence and some finesse. Not an especially big wine, but balanced and harmonious. Quite good length.

Ian D'Agata

Tasting: Barbera d’Alba

Bright red. Slightly reduced nose of underbrush, flowers and dark cherry. Then fresh and clean with ripe black cherry and blackberry. Lots of oak but also lots of fruit to stand up to it. Very ripe style.
