2016 Piemonte Barbera d'Asti
An elegant, fruit-forward everyday sipper from one of Italy's premier wine regions.
Raised largely in stainless steel with a small portion going to neutral barrel, Lot 591 presents fresh, uplifted aromas of blackberry and black cherry mingled with red clay and peppery floral notes. It's plump and juicy on the palate, but lovingly juxtaposes the dark fruit and earthy clay components of the nose. It's supple across the mid-palate with an elegant, lengthy, fruit-driven finish.
Flavors: Blackberry, Cherry, Earth, Floral, Pepper
