This is the style of Barbera which strongly appeals to my palette. This wine opened up with aromas of sour cherry, plum, pomegranate, dried violet and spicy notes. On the mouthfeel, medium bodied, dry, smooth texture, firm acidity and fine dusty tannins. Good length and very pleasant on the finish with flavours of sweet and sour fruit and savoury spices. This wine is 100% Barbara, maturation for 12 months in oak barrels and alcohol coming in at 13.5%. This 2010 vintage is a much stronger effort, better balance than the 2009 vintage. The 1% reduction in alcohol makes for a much fresher and more enjoyable, prettier Barbera. Great value and strongly recommended.
