Elio Perrone Tasmorcan Barbera D'Asti 2009 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Black cherry, violets, and plum on the nose

Ripe, round, and full bodied on the palate

Smooth finish of plum, blackberry, and vanilla


Barbera from the Piedmont region in Italy often surprises people. Many expect a more austere and savory wine and are surprised to find Barbera quite round and supple.

This offering has ripe fruit, floral notes, and a smooth finish in a very international style. Check it out as an alternative to Malbec or Merlot. It runs approximately $14. Raise a glass!
