A fleshy, warm and generous barbera, a little on the overripe and cooked side but still holds its own. A pleasant...

The 2007 Ca' Nova Bric De Maschi Barbera D'alba Superiore has intense aromas of lees, dates and abundant oak. It is fruity, with medium body and a medium, chalky finish. Its structure is bit disconnected, with higher acidity and stronger, out of balance tannins (decant for 15 min). It is food friendly or can be enjoyed as a sipper; drink now-2018+. My impression: NICE, 89 pts - this is not a usual Barbera, it is made more so to resemble an overoaked Super Tuscan, none-the-less the appeal is there. Tasted Feb/13.
