Batasiolo Barbera d'Alba 2016

Piedmont, ItalyIt's been a decade since we have seen this wine. The nose is an aromatic floral mix of red fruits, violets, leather and spice with just a hint of tar. The attack is barbera fresh with prominent acidity followed by rich, dry, round tannins and subdued sweet and sour red cherry. This is a food wine, best served with meaty or mushroom pastas or risottos, or midweight cheeses. Drink or hold. Solid. Outstanding value for Italian wine lovers.Tasted: 05 November 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 14.99 BCLS Producer: Beni di BatasioloDistributors: Charton-Hobbs
