2019 Barbera d´Alba Vigna Cerretta, Giacomo Conterno
After a day cross county skiing, what better than open a bottle of this stunning juice with a ham and cheese pie?
The nose explodes from the glass with gorgeous notes of raspberry licorice, fir wood, bay leaves, new leather and pipe tobacco. A wonderful sweetness to the fruit. Great juice.
The taste is rich, multi layered and forward with notes of blackberries, rhubarb, smoke, fried herbs and tobacco. A very fine acidity. Long and lingering. Great now and the coming 10+ years.
