Rossi & Riccardo Barbera 2014 Piemonte DOC
The Rossi & Riccardo range showcases some of Italy’s most important and characterful grape varieties in pure and unadorned forms, providing expressions that are distinctly varietal and unmistakably Italian. All fruit is sourced from prime vineyards that are farmed along organic lines. Each variety is handled by a producer with a profound connection to that grape and its classic territory, and articulated in an authentic way – no tricks just pure, vibrant expressions from the finest makers.
100% Barbera. Lifted nose of dark fruits mingling with intense ripe red berry notes and spice; dense but lifted and pure. The palate opens with ample ripe red fruit, black cherry Danish, sour cherry and spiced plum notes, with an underlying nuance of almond and gravelly minerals; the fruit intensity is supported by classic crunchy Asti acid and fine but persistent tannins.
