The 2010 Barbera d'Alba is outrageously delicious. Dark, powerful and intense, the 2010 races across the palate with serious depth and intensity. Black cherry, smoke, licorice, menthol, spices and autumn leaves are all beautifully delineated in the glass. This is an especially virile, old-school Barbera, yet all the elements are in the right place. Luca Roagna's decision to release his Barbera late means readers will find a wine with lovely aromatic nuance and complexity. There is so much like here. Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

This is Barbera? You could be tricked into thinking it's a medium aged Nebbiolo. The nose showed lifted notes of dried cherry, strawberry and sweet herbs with hints of pine, leather, and dusty earth coming forward over time. On the palate, medium-bodied textures were offset by zesty acidity with firm, grippy tannin, saturating tart cherry, dried apple, saline-minerality, and inner floral tones. It finished on sweet herbs and minerals, providing a youthfully tannic sensation. This is one of the most interesting and engaging Barbera I've ever tasted.

A boy hot on the palate, but it settles down after a while. Very good fruit. Dried cherries and maybe a little bit of leather? The tannins are not too bad, and the acidity feels low. Very nice
