Cordero di Montezemolo Barbera d'Alba 2012


After a week of moving house, I suspect I would have rated this wine highly were it lemon juice.  A satisfying wine in all senses of that description, it does what Barbera d'Alba does best - it provides a hearty, warm, full bodied wine with a bit of texture.  The aromatics remind of plum skin, plums and savoury cherry.  On the palate, fine grained tannins, hints of earth and good fruit together leave a distinctly favourable impression.  Overall, this is an enjoyable and balanced wine.

Rating: Good, Abv: 14.5%, Price: $50s (restaurant), Vendors:, Website:, Tasted: 2014
