Giorgio Pelissero Barbera d'Alba Piani, 2009

Barbera d'Alba PianiThis is a serious Barbera, one of the best I have encountered.

Deep, dark ruby. Looks rich, and it is. Scents of blueberries, flowers, spice, coffee, dark chocolate. Powerful wine with oak tannins framing the fruit but not obscuring it. Good acid and long finish. Barbera is often thought of as a first course wine, but this one will stand up to any dish you put on the table.
