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

Summary:

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!
