IAN D’AGATA BARBERA D’ASTI AND NIZZA
Everything Barbera wines should be: bright, fresh, vinous, loaded with brambly fruit, lip-smacking acidity and smooth as silk. Excellent!
The 2012 Barbera d’Asti Superiore Nizza has retained remarkable freshness for such a big wine. Exotic and flamboyant to the core, the 2012 races across the palate with notable intensity. Red cherry jam, pomegranate, spice, white pepper and blood orange meld together in an intense, structured Barbera that will deliver considerable pleasure in the coming years.
