This Barbera from Italy's Piedmont is beautifully lush and bright. Quality fruit is lovingly hand harvested by the Vacca family, who have been on these legendary hillsides for more than a century and whose pioneering forefather was first to label Nebbiolo under the now-famous village name 'Barbaresco'. But this Barbera is a more drink-young affair, and despite fine tannins and age-worthy acidity this expressive red is ready to enjoy now with food. Superb value.
92/100 Antonio Galloni, Vinous (2019 Vintage)
"The 2019 Barbera d'Alba Superiore is a powerful, deep wine. It emerges from old vines in Ovello, from a site that could probably make a great Barbaresco, such is the wine's obvious pedigree and power. I would open the 2019 well in advance. Readers will find a Barbera of uncommon depth and structure."
