Palmina Barbera 2009


SKU 02112



The vibrant purple edges surrounding the scarlet color of the wine tells of its youth and brightness before even a swirl. The swirl releases intense and elegant aromas of blackberry preserves on toast and just picked dark plums. A first sip pleases and surprises the palate, with the roundness from the nose being overtaken with a bright and lively acidity and red fruit flavors - red raspberry, sour cherry, mulberry and cran-cherry. The layering from the vineyards is evident with textural components of bramble, tea-like soft tannins and a hint of rhubarb mingling with more blackberry, a hint of tar and earthiness and a lifting red plum note on the finish. This wine loves food, so enjoy with anything 'rustica' - spaghetti with meatballs, lasagna, risottos and just about anything with tomatoes and herbs! Enjoyable now, but will really improve with aging - we suggest decanting or aerating while the wine is still in its youth. - Winery Notes
