WINE PROFILE

Barbera d'Alba 2014

89 POINTS - VINOUS MEDIA      [Read More]

divider

Elio's Barbera is a beautiful expression of the grape. It's supple and fragrant with great purity and elegant, ripe cherry fruits. It's full bodied with great freshness. The vineyards are located around the winery in La Morra and are treated with the same care as any of the prized Nebbiolo vineyards. The wine spends six months in French oak barriques of second or third passage, so the fruit is very well integrated with spicy oak tones but not overly sweet or heavily polished. This wine is all about luxurious Barbera fruit.
