Tasting Note:

The sensual, refined nature of this Barbera make it compelling and moreish to drink now, however this is a Barbera that ages beautifully as the estate's very youthful 96s and 97s will attest to. Linear, salt-flecked, smooth redcurrant and berry fruits. Focused, intense and no heaviness. One of the most special Barbera bottlings there is. A blend of wine from the Pozzo and Annunziata vineyards both in the La Morra commune. The vines aren’t particularly old, averaging 20 years; however, the extraordinarily high planting density makes for microscopic yields, only half a kilo per vine. Aged in 30% new oak for a year and a half.
