  • Score: 92 Vintage 2017 James Suckling A outstanding, typical barbera from the opulent 2017 vintage with lots of ripe plums and peaches and some orange peel. Walnut undertone, too. Full-bodied and flavorful. Lightly chewy tannins give tension and form to the wine. Drink or hold. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 90 Vintage 2016 Wine Advocate Enzo Rapalino's 2016 Barbera d'Alba Superiore is a thick and darkly concentrated expression with dried blackberry, plum and crushed aspirin. Despite the dry and linear aromas of this wine from La Ganghija, there is a surprising note of cherry or blackberry sweetness that pops up on the palate. This wine is a lot of fun, taking you on unexpected twists and turns but concluding with your hunger in mind. I could see this Barbera as an accompaniment to a hearty plate of fettuccine alla bolognese. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
