Winemaker's Notes

Tasmorcan is a young, fresh, beguiling wine made from young vines.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2011 Barbera d'Asti Tasmorcan is drop-dead gorgeous. Readers are going to have a hard time finding a better wine for the money. Dark fruit, smoke, licorice and graphite flow through to the sexy, voluptuous finish. Sweet floral notes add a measure of refinement. This delicious, fruit-forward Barbera is an excellent choice for drinking over the next few years. Even better, it is a great value."

Style: Smooth & Supple
I have drank about 4 different vintages of this wine and it never disappoints. Medium bodied silky smooth fruit driven Barbera with tons of sweet and sour cherry flavors, almost with a licquer or kirsch like quality. Taste some licorice on the finish. Also has a salinity to it that make it mouthwatering.
