The first thing you notice is the color; a rich dark purple, very dense and obscure. In the glass, the wine shows weight that is heavy, rich and silky. On the nose, flavors of dark cherries, black current and dark plum develop and swiftly expand with hints of smoke and light oak. The wine has wonderful mouth feel with a refined presence. This Barbera is very smooth, and the flavors of the nose develop across the palate with an explosive finish from the mid palate to the back of the mouth. It is a party in the mouth!
