Giacomo Conterno Cerretta Barbera d'Alba 2013

$46

GUARANTEED BEST PROVENANCE: IMPORTED BY AIR FROM ITALY AND STOCKED IN CALIFORNIA Conterno makes powerful Barbera wines that are truly world-class wines. You pay more for these wines than other Barbera wines from the region, and after one taste you'll understand why. The 2013 Conterno Barbera Vigna Cerretta has a rich nose of raspberries, pomegranate and rhubarb. On the palate it starts with substantial minerality and opens up quickly with intense red fruits and vibrant acidity.  Like the 2013 Francia, this could benefit from some cellar time.

This Barbara still has good fruits on nose and palate, slight tannins and good acidity but not that reflux type! Coming from Serralunga it is so balanced after 7 years!! Probably the best Barbara I have ever had!!!

When I want the complexity of Barolo/Barbaresco and the approachability of Barbera this is where I constantly find myself turning. Textbook precision

A great Barbera but its intense sweetness is controversial, even though showing an obvious producer signature. Youthful so better hold a few years before pulling the trigger. 92+

Deep but very elegant,silky, feminine aromas of dsrk fig, licorice, lavender on the nose. Med body, med plus acid, super delicate, smooth texture with hint of mushroom and bitterness on the end(just between brett and earthy character)...savory barbera need some food, tajarin, fat salmon sushi can be great. 14% abv.
