The cool 2019 growing cycle gave us a Barbera of good acidity, rich black fruit and mineral elements. The wine shows the beautiful pulpy purple color so typical of Barbera. On the nose black and red fruits are framed by hints of new wood (but very muted at 25% new). 2019 does not have the volume and life of a year like 2015, 2011 or 2007, but instead displays the classic side of Barbera to great advantage. It is very lively on the palate and jumps on the tongue with brightness. The 2019 Barbera should be an excellent match with rich foods like roast pork or a lasagne with béchamel. It is a precise, focused Barbera of great purity.

The 2019 Barbera d'Alba is pure seduction. Silky and plush, with lovely red berry fruit, spice and floral notes, the Barbera is wonderfully expressive today. Here, too, readers will find a much more restrained style than in the past.

A bright style, this red is laced with cherry, bitter almond and iron flavors. It boasts a spine of brisk acidity and a bitter finish. Drink now through 2024. 400 cases imported.
