Barbera d`Alba Cerretta, Conterno


The 2013 Barbera d’Alba Cerretta is a touch more precise and linear than it often is, the signature of the cool year. Graphite and smoke notes appear first, followed by deeply expressive, pliant fruit notes that fill out the sides of the palate. The freshness and vibrancy of the year are the signatures, though, in an energetic, saline-infused Barbera that will drink well for a number of years.
