Tasting Note:

A great deal of class, one of the most intense and stylish Barberas there is, silky but focused and fresh. Fine-tuned crystalline redcurrant, berry and cherry fruit with strong rock-salt overtones. One of the most special Barbera bottlings. 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. The wine is aged in new barriques, 40% new oak.
