Ca' del Baio Barbera d Alba 'Paolina' 2018 (Piedmont, Italy) "...red currants, raspberries, vibrant..."
Grapes grown on several vineyards go together into making this appealing fresh wine in which Barbera’s characteristic acid backbone is tamed by skilful wooding.
Ca' del Baio is one of the more wonderful, underrated producers in Barbaresco. The wines routinely deliver stellar quality for the price, from the single crus to this utterly charming Barbera. The "Paolina" is 100% Barbera from vineyards near the village of Treiso and described by the winery as "fresh and vibrant on the mouth, showing a long, rich, smooth flavour."
"colour deep ruby red with purplish highlights; nose vinous and intensely fruity, with nice hints of red currants and raspberries; taste fresh and vibrant on the mouth, showing a long, rich, smooth flavour." - Producer
