What The Critics Say...

Anthony Gismondi On Wine logo
Wine critic score of 92 points, 17 out of 20, and 4 out of 5 glasses

This comes from several calcareous laced sedimentary soiled vineyards in the southern part of Asti, primarily La Court Estate and Montemareto in Castelnuovo Calcea, La Serra in Montaldo Scarampi, and Costa delle Monache in Agliano. Fermentation in steel tanks. After 10 days of maceration during ferment, this rested 16 months in stainless prior to release. So perfumed and fragrant, yet precise and serious, with a brilliantly alluring tension between violets, iris, and plums, blueberries. Tannins are long, supple, and whisper fine, and acidity is bright, easily lofting this slight red through the saline finish. True to house style, a seriously finessed wine, and a Barbera worth seeking out. Gismondi on Wine
