Tasting Note: Barbera in d’Asti gets the prime, south-facing hillside sites, and this bottle shows what’s possible when crop positioning, vintage and expert winemaking all come together.

Medium-intensity ruby in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of red cherry, strawberry, red plum, blossom and hibiscus.

On the palate the dry, medium-bodied wine had medium-plus-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium-plus acidity and slightly-grippy, medium tannin.

There is midpalate complexity and floral notes running throughout the length of the taste punctuated by red fruit.

I adore Barbera d’Asti, and especially this one.
