Elsa 2003 (Valentin Bianchi) wine review by (PB)
This Argentinian Barbera was opened on the ocassion of our new grand daughter's birth. (NW) grabbed it three years ago in anticipation of this time. The wine is opaque red with a nice bouquet of ripe black cherry fruit.
The palate is rich with a bready note and toast with nice structure. It is surprisingly rich for what is normally a simple, fruity table wine. It is really pleasant.
I asked (NW) if this was a pricey wine--it tasted like it. Yet he paid about $8 for it! so again, we raised a glass to new life and good--cheap--wine. S'good!
