Totally opaque black dark red core with a bright deep purple red hue. A fragrant nose of ripe, freshly crushed berries combines with hints of violets, subtle liquorice, inky earth and spice scents. Juicy and vibrant the palate is filled with crushed dark cherry, liquorice and plum flavours which sit over nuances of inky earth and spice. Finishes dry with bright lively acidity and finely grained, perfectly integrated tannins. Juicy aftertaste of lightly spiced crushed cherries, plum, liquorice, subtle inky earth and traces of fresh herbs. Drink over the next 3-4 years.

I’m not the world’s biggest fan of Barbera, but when it’s good, and it’s from 2016, well… Floral, dark cherry, red fruit, spice, lively, medium-bodied, such fine balance, tannin is grainy but fine, ‘mineral’ feel to the acidify, fresh, juicy and long to close. Smoking Barbera, and so nicely made. Drink 2019-2026+
