Beaut barbera

Barale Fratelli Castlè Barbera d’Alba Superiore 2016, Piedmont, AUD $45

The colour is deep, bright red/purple and the aromas are lively and fresh, summoning intense raspberry and blueberry fruits with an overlay of almond. It’s medium to full-bodied and the tannins are soft and easy, the acidity bright but not high, affording freshness. An appetising red wine. (Diam cork)
