It is Thursday night and tonight the wine I have opened is the 2016 La Spinetta Ca' Di Pian Barbera d' Asti. On the nose is black cherry, plum, strawberry, incense, violets, anise and earth. On the palate there is cherry, strawberry, plum, anise, dried leaves, baking spices and wet earth. This wine is medium to full bodied fresh clean in the mouth with medium + acidity and medium to medium+ fine mouth filling grippy tannins tha gives into a long fresh fruit earthy finish. I hope everyone's week has been a good one and let's look to the weekend to refresh. Please stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia!

Carne Asada wine. Still nice pop of fresh blue/black fruits and just a bit of that prune/fig action. Solid little number in the low $20s.

Solid easy drinking and wonderful. Nice linger and fresh fruit. Alcohol is a bit pronounced but it’s still comfortable in the mix.

Just ok. Sweet and acidic upfront with a more tannic finish but not a lot of complexity. Dark fruit - plum and fig.

Structured and kind of serious for a Barbera. Lots of herbs and spices in addition to the expected bright fruit. Fairly tannic and acidic - much better on day 2. Good value.
