The Cordero di Montezemolo 2018 Barbera d'Alba shows dark color saturation and medium extraction, revealing a wine that is defined by the sheer power and richness of the naked fruit. Blackberries, plums and black cherries are the protagonists, but the wine also delivers earthy tones with some spice and faint mineral accents. The finish is soft and velvety with bright primary fruit flavors, calling out for a wood-oven pizza with broccolini and spicy sausage.

This is very plummy with grape must, morello cherries and blackberry essence. Round and fruity with lots of pretty acidity and spicy undertones. Drink now.
