Tasting Note:

Effortlessly silky dark fruits, notes of creme de mure and blueberry, infused with a tarter cranberry touch. A perfect blend of glossy ripeness and vivid freshness. Oak spice and a saltiness are woven intricately and seamlessly through the fruit. Barbera can often be too pointed, or at the other extreme too heavy, this is a perfectly harmonious rendition. Classy, superbly balanced and lifted, so complete and easy to enjoy. 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.
