One of the better Barberas around. Period.
Much more elegant that you normally would think of when drinking a barbera. Layers of dark fruit, mineral and pencil notes. Mouthfilling. Very, very long. It is a barbera in the Vietti La Crena/Scarrone, Altare’s Larigi, and Coppo’s Pomorosso mold, and although on the expensive side, way cheaper than, say, Voerzio’s Barbera d’Alba Riserva Vigneto Pozzo dell’Annunziata. This can easily be cellared and drunk at 10 years of age, but it provides tons of pleasure also at a young age. If the 07 is hard to come by, the 09 should be a good alternative. News’ already out that Gambero Rosso has awarded the 09 3 glasses (Tre Bicchieri) in their 2012 edition. http://bit.ly/pHCIbE
