Oddero, Barbera D’Alba 2012, Piedmont, Italy
Tasting Note: A straightforward barbera with some minor notes of midpalate complexity.
Medium-intensity ruby-to-garnet in color, this wine has a nose of restrained plum, raspberry, crushed-Flintstone’s vitamin, dried herb and clove baking spice.
On the palate the barbera is tart with red fruit flavors including red cherry.
The wine is medium-plus in acidity and completes with a medium finish.
