Renato Ratti Barbera D’ Alba

This is a delicious Barbera from Renato Ratti’s Torriglione Vineyards near Alba.  It opens with a nose of intense, bright fruit.  Very rich in plum, dark currants and a hint of spice.  The palate is caressed with a silky softness that is almost chocolaty.  Flavors of plum and light spice linger for a satisfying, long finish.
