Alessandro and Gian Natale Fantino Barbera d'Alba Superiore (Piedmont) 2016 is available to buy in increments of 1
A serious Barbera that gives Nebbiolo a run for the money, made from 60+ years old vines, a wine with poise and complexity, deep burgundy color, nose smells of smoke, incense, leather, blackberry, black plum, cranberry, and nutmeg, medium to full body with structured and firm tannin, nice balanced acidity with loads of mineral on the palate, tastes of dark chocolate, dried cranberry, black tea, hibiscus and smoked bacon, long finish with mildly spiciness and licorice aftertaste.
- Winemaker Notes

Vinous

The 2016 Barbera d'Alba Superiore Cascina Dardi comes across as a bit disjointed, with the elements not totally in balance. There is good depth to the fruit, but the aromatics aren't quite as focused as they usually are.
