What do the experts say?

Monica Larner (Wine Advocate): Opening to dark fruit with teriyaki beef and clove, this wine shows depth, intensity and purity. Thanks to those bright, high-toned aromas, this wine is actually closer to Nebbiolo than it is to Barbera. There are bright aromas, some firm tannins and bright acidity. The finish is smooth and fine with crushed aspirin and talc powder.

Price: €€
