Barbera d'Alba, Rocche Costamagna 2017

Red | Italy | Piemonte | 14% | Lighter, fruitier red

Often seen as Barolo lite, Barbera is far more than just a junior Piedmont sibling. Granted, it has the smoky, briary black fruits of Nebbiolo, with more than a hint of tar, but when in the hands of someone like Alessandro Locatelli it has oodles of vibrant Morello cherry notes, hints of herbs and dark chocolate. The 2017 frankly blew our socks off as soon as we tasted it!

A fabulous nose of velvety black fruit, Morello cherry and damson stone. Deliciously juicy black fruit on the palate, soft and supple with very smooth tannins and a light bite of acidity behind. Succulent with notes of dry stone and peach kernels, going to a sweet, alluring finish, really primary and very approachable already.

Drink 2019 – 2023.
