About

93

Lovely aromas of ripe plum, blackberry, red cherry, violets, smoke and baking spice emanate from the glass. The flavors are luscious and silky-smooth, with layers of black cherry, plum and blackberry fruits underlain by the slighty rustic smoky/earthy/leathery complexity. This could change your mind about how good Barbera can be.

92 James Suckling - Jamessuckling.com

The intensity of fruit is impressive here, with plum and peach aromas and flavors. Full body, savory fruit and a fresh finish.

91 Wine Spectator

Dark in color and fruit, showing graphite, blackberry, black currant, plum and violet flavors. Modern in style, with a supple texture and a long aftertaste evoking vanilla and spice.
