Wine tasting notes

Aromas of ripe black fruits such as prunes, blackcurrants and dark cherries are complemented by notes of toasted almonds and pink peppercorns. The palate is warm, generous and flavoursome with a balanced structure and a lengthy finish.

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2013) - 90 pts

June 2015 - Monica Larner - The lovely 2013 Barbera d'Alba shows pretty fruit intensity with bold layers of ripe cherry and chewy blackberry. It opens to thick, dark concentration with blackish and purplish hues that run through the wine's thick texture. The aromatic component is similarly opulent with spice and tobacco at the back. Bright acidity gives the wine a lively and crisp finish.


Vinous/Antonio Galloni (2013) - 91 pts

Nov/Dec 15. By Antonio Galloni - The 2013 Barbera d'Alba is pliant, juicy and expressive, in other words, everything Barbera from Alba is supposed to be. Sweet red and blue-fleshed fruits, spices and mint are all pushed forward in an absolutely joyous, racy Barbera to drink over the next handful of years.


JancisRobinson.com (2010) - 16.5 pts

Published : 10-Oct-2012. Sweet and brooding and with more depth than its Asti counterpart. Lots of extract and with acidity to match. Sweet, ripe and long fruit-driven finish. Definitely youthful. (WS). When to drink 2012 to 2018.


Wine Spectator (2013) - 90 pts

Very pure and focused, featuring black cherry, cassis, tobacco and spice aromas and flavors. Still a bit firm on the finish, but stays long and spicy.


James Suckling (2011) - 91 pts

A Barbera with a solid core of fruit that envelops a strawberry and grapy character. Full body with bright acidity and a clean and fruity finish. Drink now.
