Barbera d'Alba, Giacomo Conterno, 2003

Well I guess Barbera doesn’t get much better than this. Rich and zesty at the same moment, the ripe dark fruit flavors roll in velvety layers on the nose and palate. However, this richness is balanced by a bright acidity that ties everything together in a lively and complex package. As good as this wine is now, I see no reason to age it.

Drink up and enjoy.
