92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - March 2010
(15% alcohol; this aged for 18 months in new barriques Deep ruby-red. Subdued but pure aromas of currant, minerals and cedary oak, with a suggestion of calcaire lift. Big, thick and silky on entry, then sexy and sweet in the middle but with plenty of energy to give lift and shape to the chewy mid-palate. Finishes long, sweet and ripely tannic, with terrific fruit and noteworthy breadth. This makes most barberas from this vintage come off as dry by comparison, but then that's not necessarily a bad thing! (Marc de Grazia; numerous importers)
