Tasting Note

The wine is densely purple in colour. It’s a full-on nose, packed with concentrated black types of fruit like mulberry and ridiculously ripe cherry. But it’s the spice and herbaciousness that marks this wine as different. The wine is rich, but fresh, with clean, refreshing acidity and soft, luscious tannins. If cellared correctly this vintage will live for twenty years easily, but is drinking very well now because of the softness of the wine crafting.

Food Pairing

Needs something rich and savoury… like a good Steak!

Fascinating

A fascinating expression of Barbera. Expressive nose, long finish. Has evolved wonderfully over 3 years since I tasted it second time around last.

"So great to be able to receive a regular delivery of good wine rather than the usual 12 bottle case sold by most 'wine clubs' "

- Terry Wharton Hood -

Great wine at a great time, everytime
