This is a serious step up on what most consider to be Barbera. There's loads of black cherry/berry along with vanilla and cinnamon spice and big time smokey/meaty notes on the nose. The palate is quite full-bodied with medium+ acid and tannins with high alcohol (14.5% alcohol). Everything is balanced, but this one could use another 2 years to mellow. If you're drinking now, make sure there are some grilled red meats on the table. Regardless, this is one seriously tasty wine. Tasted May 2014.
