Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
The color is ruby red, bright and intense; the vivacity makes it tempting. The aromas are very delicate, with blackberry and plum. On the whole, the aromas are pleasant and teasing. Saltiness and acidity are in the foreground of this wine, but do not hide its
polifenolic power. The amplitude of this Barbera is very interesting together with its persistent aftertaste.
"The 2009 Barbera d'Alba Piani is fabulous. Freshly cut flowers, red fruit and spices are just some of the nuances that flow from this pliant, hugely delicious Barbera. A hint of oak frames the finish, but the Piani is really about fruit. It is a beautifully balanced, totally harmonious wine of the highest level. I loved it."
The Wine Advocate
"Bright medium ruby. Very ripe aromas of blackberry, bitter chocolate and licorice. Very rich and sweet, but with nicely integrated acidity giving lift to the glossy fruit. Finishes with suave tannins and excellent persistence. For barbera this has all the elements. Pelissero considers 2009 to be a great year for barbera, noting that the 2010s are lighter wines from a more humid year, although well-aerated sites could have done very well."
International Wine Cellar
"An exotic version, showing boysenberry and black cherry flavors, with a hint of bittersweet chocolate. There are some dusty tannins on the finish."
