Yes, delightful. That's exactly what I think of this wine...racy aromatics with ripe, fresh fruit and pretty florals just make it...delightful.
A 2021 Barbera D'Alba from the Langhe area of Barolo, Lot 324 is the kid sister to Lots 323 Nebbiolo and Lot 326 Barolo, all sourced from the same producer.
This is a drink early, drink fresh offering that delivers tremendous pleasure for everyday consumption. Sure, it's serious enough to warrant a little cellaring, but happy enough to be plucked and eaten straight off the vine as well.
Either way, it's a pleasure to drink with its vibrant character and excellent freshness. It is also a steal at
Intense ruby red with vibrant purple hues. Fresh, crisp, lovely bouquet of black cherry and blackberry haloed with rose petals and spice with hints of mineral and fresh leather. Concentrated and smooth on entry with ripe fruit layered over vibrant graphite and mineral notes that make for a dynamic palate. Plummy and harmonious on the finish with pretty retronasal fruit blast highlighting the purity of fruit.
This is an amazingly food-friendly wine, in fact, I would say this is purpose-built food wine. It will a perfect pairing for just about any pasta dish, robust stews, cold cuts, baked pork medallions and fairly fresh soft cheeses.
