Tasting Notes

This beautiful Barbera has the elegance and finesse of fine jewelry, with the strength and purity of precious stones. Its hue holds a staggering depth of brilliance, shining with garnet on the edges, deepening to rich ruby at its core. The bouquet harnesses intensely aromatic energy, embodying strawberry rhubarb pie, sour cherry, cocoa, and hints of Luxardo, violet, and pink peppercorn. The palate mirrors the bouquet, offering notes of dark cherry, raspberry compote, iris, baker’s chocolate, and departs with layers of red currant and leather. The finish is the finest satin, a soft and smooth farewell. The richness and structure of this wine will continue to develop for years to come.
