Plump, ripe fruit and cherry-covered chocolate overflow from this generous 2017 Barbera d'Alba Bricco dei Merli. This is a beautiful and fruit-forward expression with delicious fruit intensity and lots of succulent ripeness. Enjoy it with a decadently cheesy penne alla Norma.

92 pts Vinous

The 2016 Barbera d'Alba Bricco dei Merli is one of the highlights in Elvio Cogno's range of entry-level offerings. Pliant, deep and seductive, with tremendous overall depth, the 2016 is all class. Bright red cherry, plum, rose petal mint and licorice build into the creamy, voluptuous finish. What a gorgeous wine this is.

92 pts Wine Spectator

Vanilla, blackberry, plum and earth flavors ply the dense, burly profile of this powerful red. Fresh and balanced, giving this the possibility to develop well over time. Comes together nicely on the finish, where a floral element emerges. Drink now through 2028. 800 cases made, 119 cases imported.

91 pts James Suckling

Another very successful barbera with subtle citrus character, dried violets and lavender. Medium-bodied yet quite spicy, this paints bright, dark fruit in watercolors. Drink now.
