Brief

The iconic and soon to be legendary 2016 vintage in Alba is on full display in this absolutely breathtaking Barbera. Our tasting panel fell silent as we got into this one. SO much to love about this deep purple missile of power and perfectly ripe red berries with wonderful brightness and elegance. VERY well-judged acidity and balance in one of our favorite week-night go-to's on the site right now! A fine match with pizza of all sorts, this is a gastronomic delight!
