A medium bodied wine that was best straight out of the bottle as there was some attractive tar and tobacco that faded to reveal sweeter flavors of plumb and spice. An attractive wine from Ratti, a grandee in Barolo. (This wine was enjoyed at Maison Pickle in the UWS - handily family friendly in the day and quite hip in the evening. If cocktails are your thing then their Smoke and Fire is surely the way to go).

Would have liked stronger finish. Medium body. Not enough tannins for us. Goes down like a Pinot noir.

Shockingly, we avoided the heated-must mine field here...just pure, juicy, velvety Barbera goodness in its most naked, honest expression.
