2013 Cà Viola "Brichet" Barbera d'Alba
A tangy, delicious red with a soft texture and plenty of ripe fruit such as blueberries and blackberries. Hints of citric acidity. Full and savory.
Fragrant and fresh, this offers scents of blue flowers, wild berry, moist earth, chopped herbs and a hint of baking spice. The vibrant, supple palate doles out juicy black cherry, crushed raspberry, white pepper and star anise alongside fresh acidity. (KO)

Lush and juicy, boasting blackberry, black currant and sweet spice flavors. Shows tannins from oak, and remains long and defined on the aftertaste. (BS)
The 2013 Barbera d'Alba Brichet is the archetype of modern Barbera and a great value to boot. Dark red cherry, pomegranate, wild flowers and spices are some of the notes that emerge from this bold, punchy Barbera. Silky, polished tannins round out soft contours on the expressive, textured finish. (AG)
