89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2013
(14.5% alcohol; bottled in April of this year): Bright red with ruby highlights. Sexy liqueur-like ripeness to the expressive aromas and flavors of black cherry, raspberry and espresso, but sound acidity gives this broad, rather powerful and dense barbera a solid underlying structure. Compelling sweetness gives the finish substantial sexy appeal. Bruna Giacosa, who noted that 2011 was a very good vintage for barbera, told me that this wine is carrying 30 grams per liter of dry extract, a level that compares favorably to many Barolos and Barbarescos.
