Andrea Bricarello

Tasting: Barbera d’Alba

Meaty and fruity notes followed by a spiced core with lots of pepper and sour cherries character. The body is elegant with well balanced acidity and round polished tannins.

Stephen Brook

Tasting: Barbera d’Alba

Opaque red. Curiously glassy red-fruits nose. Rich, firm, compact and concentrated, with good acidity to lift the palate. Quite skeletal now and needs time to flesh out, but the wine seems complete and long, with a surprisingly tannic finish.

Ian D'Agata

Tasting: Barbera d’Alba

Deep ruby. Oaky nose offers hints of faint red and black cherry and plums. Then more oak and ripe black fruit with youthfully chewy tannins on the palate. Needs time to resolve the oak but there’s plenty of fruit.
