Barbera D'Asti D'Annona Superiore 2014 75cl 14.5% ABV
The d'Annona vineyard is owned by Claudio Manera and his wife Lella - and it is here that they live. The wine of the same name is made by their son Carlo at Il Cascinone, and the result is a sublime and opulent Barbera.
A ripe, intense nose of cherry, baked earth, spice and savoury aromas, leads to a silky smooth palate of sour cherry, herbs, leather with some floral, violet notes. An impressively concentrated wine with good structure, weight of black cherry fruit and sweet ripe tannins. The finish provides some refreshing astringency and good acidity.
