Valdinera Barbera d'Alba Superiore, 2013

Even at age 7, this is a very fresh, bright, fruity Barbera which is a beautiful match for our mushroom/onion/spinach pasta.

Beautiful deep ruby. Spicy, fruity scents. From the time I pop the cork, I know that I need the Pinot/Barolo glasses to capture and hold the aromas. Cherries and flowers, lively and intense. Similar intensity on the palate. Tannic mid-palate, but this is a wine to enjoy now for its fruity intensity. Lots of pleasure for the money (about $15/bottle).
