Ratings and Tasting Notes:
RP=93 The 2015 Barbera d'Alba will be released later this year in September. This is a darkly extracted expression from a warm vintage. Barbera loves the extra heat and the fruit within this wine expresses itself with cheerful abundance and intensity. One of the best characteristics of Barbera is that its acidity remains intact even in the warm years. That inherent freshness defines this wine, adding vigor and stamina to those long and luscious fruit flavors. This an extrovert wine with plump richness and succulence.
AG=89 The 2015 Barbera d'Alba is the most overt of Luciano Sandrone's entry-level wines. A rush of raspberry jam, French oak, spice, and wildflowers gives the wine its decidedly extroverted personality. Ripeness is pushed to the edge in this racy, opulent Barbera.
