Anthony Gismondi on Wine
Batasiolo Barbera d'Alba

Batasiolo Barbera d'Alba 2000

Piedmont, ItalyMade from the barbera grape this red opens with black licorice and earthy spicy aromas. It splashes across the palate with good acidity and a sense of vibrancy but generally it's a soft sipper. Less fruit and an earthier, spicy flavour mark the 2000 edition.Tasted: 01 March 2003Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices: BC 14.95 Specialty Producer: Beni di BatasioloDistributors: Charton-Hobbs
