Expert Reviews

Jeremy Oliver (2002 Vintage) says
Cooked, meaty and varnishy, revealing under and over-ripe sweet and moderately intense flavours of black and red berries and greenish, herbaceous undertones. Medium in weight, its spicy palate lacks length and structure, finishing with a varnishy and tomatoey aspect.

Jeremy Oliver (2001 Vintage) says
Highly enjoyable if not entirely flawless barbera with a pungent, slightly wild and reductive, smoky and oily aroma of nicotine and dark cherries. Honest, rustic and uncomplicated, its medium-weight palate offers bright cherry and raspberry flavours before a slightly bitter and reductive finish. It's long and savoury, with lingering earthy diesel oil flavours.

James Halliday (2000 Vintage) says
Light to medium purple-red; fresh crushed berry, leaf and mint aromas are followed by a palate with lots of sweet, juicy berry flavours and soft tannins, very similar to the impact of grenache. If oak has been used, it is not obvious.

James Halliday (1995 Vintage) says
Medium to full purple-red; pronounced, potent earthy minerally aromas introduce a wine with dark berry/briary fruit on the palate, with a surprisingly delicate finish. Very good overall structure, and the best of the Italian range, although I am not so sure about the roses or the hazelnuts claimed by the back label.
