BARBERA D'ALBA 2017 DOC
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer RIZZI
This NEW in Vintages Barbera d'Alba is a head-turner and makes for perfect Italian summer sipping with just the right amount of freshness. Intense deep ruby in colour, itís the bright, ripe, fairly intense, cherry-blackberry-plum nose that lures you in. The taste is dry, fresh and crisp but quite well structured with bright, ripe, plummy-crancherry fruit along with a lingering tangy finish. Versatile, crowd-pleasing and ready-to-drink, this 100% Barbera díAlba has 14.5% alcohol and 3 g/L residual sugar with lot number L19BA17 on the back label. CSPC 18360
