Bera Barbera D’Alba 2018Bera Barbera D’Alba 2018
Bera Barbera D’Alba 2018. A Bera red usually shows deep, rich fruit, but with great complexity and always freshness, life and zip. Here they maximized the deep plummy juiciness and concentration, and retain the savoury edge to go so well with many foods, simple or rich. A great allround red, which needs just a little breathing.

Rocche Costamagna Babera D’Alba Superiore 2015 comes from a single vineyard in Verduno, and really wows with its complexity and energy.

With a long, unfurling finish, this is a Barbera from the very top drawer. Produced only in the best years.
