"Widely grown throughout Italy but especially prominent in Piedmont, Barbera is quickly becoming established in Australian vineyards, and this is a great example of its potential. This edition of Barbera opens with attractive savoury aromatics of earthly spice and red fruits. the palate shows spice and earth also with more complex red and plum fruits. Soft tannins with a full mouth feel and pleasant finish."
