The Ca di Pian displays vibrant ruby red color with purple reflections in the glass. On the nose the wine exudes beautiful and complex aroms of blueberry, dried plums and sandal wood. Complex and vibrant, the wine is focused with refreshing acidity and ripe fruit.
Pair with all kinds of soft cheeses.
"Good medium red. Plum, tobacco, licorice and nutty oak on the ripe, serious nose. Supple, concentrated and dry; densely packed and voluminous. Shows very good flavor intensity but does not come across as particularly primary following the extended elevage."
International Wine Cellar
"The 2010 Barbera d'Asti Ca' di Pian bursts from the glass with dark cherries, plums, cloves, menthol and licorice. Soft and voluptuous, yet with plenty of underlying energy, the 2010 impresses for its overall balance."
Vinous / Antonio Galloni
"This dense, tannic red offers pungent aromas of violet and raspberry, with ample fruit and a tinge of spice. Needs some time to settle down and absorb the tannins."
