This is very lively and delicious with dark fruit, orange peel and a hint of chocolate. Medium to full body, tangy acidity and a flavorful finish. Drink now.

This was an easy growing season for Barbera in general, and the additional time in wood (80% in tonneaux and 20% in barrique) for the 2016 Barbera d'Alba Trevigne has beautifully intensified this wine. Bold cherry and blue notes of dried forest berry appear on the nose along with pleasant spice and tobacco. Compared to this estate's 2015 Barbera, this vintage shows deeper aromas, with less acidity on the tongue and more ripeness and fruitiness to fill the palate. Try it with the Piedmont favorite of agnolotti and meat roast sauce.
