Great drinking Barbera with gobs of dark fruits, cherry, plum, licorice spice, forest floor & mineral. Good structure, balance that will age for many years.

๐Ÿ’ช๐ŸผPower and elegance, ๐Ÿ‡100% Barbera by Giacomo Conterno, who year after year never ceases to amaze, for his great ability to combine power and elegance in the same sip. Fat but fresh wine, rich in ripe fruit, fine and persistent. It finds its maximum expression in hot vintages like this 2017, certainly the price is not that of a classic Barbera d'Alba, but it has the makings of a great wine for ageing.
