Pio Cesare Barbera d'Alba 2016
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barbera d'Alba|
Wine AdvocateThis hot vintage delivers super richness and darkness. Made entirely from estate-grown fruit (sourced from vineyards located in both Barolo and Barbaresco), the 2015 Barbera d'Alba is a luscious and succulent wine with an inky, glossy appearance. Mature fruit aromas of dark cherry, spice and blackberry preserves hammer home the flavors associated with a warm growing season. The wine is partially aged in barrique (20%) and the remainder goes into oak casks for six months.
