Massolino Barbera d'Alba DOC 2017
Like the Dolcetto, Giovanni Angeli has delivered a superb Barbera this year. Cropped from a 3.4 hectares of limestone rich vineyards in Serralunga d'Alba, it’s a succulent, perfumed release packed with fleshy black cherries, florals, plum and dried herb flavours on a fresh and firm yet deep palate. High toned acidity from no oak accentuates the fresh fruit. Voluminous and rippling, fleshy tannins close out one of the best examples of this variety. The savoury, gentle spice aftertaste, a reminder of the knockout value here. Recommended. – Todd Slater, FWC.
