2012 Sandrone Barbera D'alba

Tasting Note: "Bright plum, graphite and cherry aromas with vanilla notes. Excellent purple-black color. In the mouth, it exhibits excellent fruit and balanced, integrated acidity with oak notes at the edges and into the finish (approximately half were new wood). There is very good mid palate richness supported by the acidity and wood notes. On the finish, persistent sweet dark fruits and oak. Drink 2015-2022" - Winery Vineyard: "Barbera is a delicate and demanding grape variety. A meticulous search throughout the area for the very best soils, combined with best-practices agronomical decisions and particular attention to vinification enable us to reveal the very best qualities of this wine. The optimum degree of ripening, achieved also thanks to very low yields, translates into a glass of round, rich, fruity wine with a balanced acid content." - Winery [+]
