Agostino Pavia & Figli Moliss Barbera d’Asti Superiore 2011 Piedmont, Italy


My Rating 91 Points. 
Price $17

What a great 100% Barbera from Agliano. DOCG

Dark ruby in color with an inky rim.

Medium bodied, and smooth, with nice long legs.

Nice, fruity nose with blueberries, blackberries, cherries, strawberries, wood, vanilla, licorice and black pepper.

Dry on the palate, and smooth with strawberries, cherries, red currants, earth, blueberries, forest floor, blackberries, spices and peppercorn.

Long finish with full, round tannins.

Really big on the palate with a full mouthfeel. Good now and will mature wonderfully in the next 5 years.

15% alcohol by volume.

Fermentation was done in stainless steel vats, for 15 days. Aged for 12 months in French and Austrian oak barrels.
