Poderi Marcarini Barbera d'Alba Ciabot Camerano

Poderi Marcarini Barbera d'Alba Ciabot Camerano 1999

Alba, Cuneo, Piedmont, ItalyCiabot Camerano literally "the tool shed in the vineyard" is an oak-aged Barbara and nine months in wood agrees with this grape. Excellent dark colour with an expressive nose of black raspberry and plum fruits. There's fine weight and acceptable acidity here in what is a rich, fruity, full blown red that could change the way you think about barbera. The price is more than fair.Tasted: 07 February 2003Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: AB 27.00 Fine Wine Boutiques Producer: Poderi Marcarini, Az Agr.Distributors: Empson Wines Canada
