Rich in body and in color, warm and robust, pleasantly tart when young, a wine suitable to aging. The particular soils of La Morra yield to it a measured acidity along with superb elegance.
Color is intense, cardinal red with sparkling hues. Forward bouquet, with trace scents of ripe plum and an undercurrent of mixed spices. Full flavor with long persistence. It will age for six-to-ten years.
"Bright, dark red. Crushed black cherry, blackberry and licorice pastille on the nose; one can smell the acidity here. Nicely delineated, firmly built barbera with strong acidity giving cut to the flavors of crushed dark fruits, violet and bitter chocolate. Finishes with excellent grip. "A classic vintage for barbera," notes Pietro Ratti. "
