This hot vintage delivers super richness and darkness. Made entirely from estate-grown fruit (sourced from vineyards located in both Barolo and Barbaresco), the 2015 Barbera d'Alba is a luscious and succulent wine with an inky, glossy appearance. Mature fruit aromas of dark cherry, spice and blackberry preserves hammer home the flavors associated with a warm growing season. The wine is partially aged in barrique (20%) and the remainder goes into oak casks for six months.

A spicy version, this sports blueberry, blackberry and subtle black pepper flavors, backed by a solid structure. Vibrant and supple, with a lingering aftertaste of fruit and earth. Drink now through 2021. 3,300 cases imported.
