CINGHIALE RATING 4
(100% Barbera)- Another stunner from the barberas. This is a pure Barbera from Piedmont. Very Dark, opaque and oily in appearance. The best color of the day. The deepest brilliant garnet almost like a jewel in a glass. Some healthy funkiness on the noseâ€”with barnyard and beyond-but not unattractive. Some woodsiness and spices. Mouthfilling and powerful with amazing tannins and softer acidityâ€”which with time balanced out as the acidity started to pick up. A well made-terroir driven wine. Really showed well with the food.
