Luciano Sandrone Barbera d’Alba 2021

$85.00

Completely different in style to the estate’s Nebbiolo’s and Dolcetto, this is a richer, rounded and darker fruited expression. Aromas of chocolate, violets, coffee, blackcurrant, blackberry, blood plum and sandalwood. Juicy and succulent, very round shape, the tannins soft and polished and the acidity in the background. A touch of Blackforest Gateau, with its sweet Morello cherry, kirsch, and creamy milk chocolate texture. With time in the glass, hints of Indian spices have me clamouring to pair this with butter chicken. The delicious outlier of the range. Waters Wine Co

 

“Inky purple in color, the 2021 Barbera D’Alba is a serious and deep wine with aromas of plum, black licorice, lavender, and smoky cedar. Medium-bodied, it fills the palate with plush tannins, even acidity, a weightless feel, and a touch of warmth on the finish. It’s going to improve if given a chance to rest another year, but it will provide prime drinking over the next 5-6 years.” 91 points, Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com
