Lean and tart but has Giacomo stuffing. Should be long lived. Opens up seriously

The 2014 Barbera d'Alba Francia is a surprisingly rich, powerful wine, especially for the year. An exotic mélange of dark cherry, plum, lavender, sage, cloves and graphite builds in the glass. There is a level of demi-glace-like textural richness that is impossible to miss. Intense and virile, the 2014 will drink beautifully for a number of years. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, Feb 2017)

Ripe red fruit, silky, great with food, cheese, or on its own. First tasted at trattoria della posta, monforte d'alba, Sep 2017.
