2017 Burzi "Plaustra" Barbera d'Alba

SKU #1492364

Alberto Burzi is one of a clutch of young winemakers in Italy who have taken his family's roots in co-op growing and turned them toward a private enterprise. He and his sister, Caterina, started their label in 2012, but even though they're the new kids on the block, they work with some great parcels in La Morra. The Plaustra is a young vineyard, but it's planted to very high density (over 8,000 vines per hectare). This leads to a dramatic intensity of fruit despite the vineyard's young vines, all while maintaining the characteristic freshness and vivid texture of the Barbera varietal.

This is my first introduction to this house and I found it to really stand out amongst other Barbera's I have tried. The opening aroma of forest earth and game blew off once oxygen hit then a burst of wild fruit that changed to partially dried figs, dark berries and toasted vanilla bean. There is but super soft texture to this wine. It should be open early and allowed to breath, the development over time shows the potential to age but also can be enjoyed early with root vegetable dishes and stewed lamb.

This is classic Barbera D Alba with dark ripe black cherries and plum, full-bodied with some minerals, dust and oak on the very long and well integrated finish. I would let this open for an hour or so and serve with a grilled Portobello mushroom or burgers and some great friends.
