Buy of the Week AU

Osvaldo Barberis Brichat Langhe Barbera 2015, Piedmont, AUD $35

The colour is deep red/purple. The bouquet is laced with smoky, nutty oak and meaty overtones, with background dark plum and dark berry nuances. The taste is of sour cherry, full-bodied and smooth, with fleshy richness, ample soft tannins and a lasting savoury aftertaste. Very good indeed. (Cork)
