According to Antonio Galloni - The 2012 Barbera d'Asti is juicy, expressive and beautiful. Plum, black cherry, licorice and mocha notes flesh out on the caressing, inviting finish. This immediate, juicy Barbera is an excellent choice for drinking over the next few years.
According to Wine Spectator - Bursting with violet, blackberry and pomegranate flavors, this red also has a firm base of tannins. A pleasant astringency lines the finish. Drink now through 2018.
Tasting Notes - This wine has a red color with intense purple tones and a fruit nose with light spice notes. It has a persistent flavor reminiscent of currants, violets, cherries and vanilla.
