Marchesi di Barolo Barbera Del Monferrato DOC 2014, Italy 

My Rating 78 Points.   

Price $12.
Dark ruby in color with medium intensity and a pink rim.

Soft nose of strawberries, sour cherries, raspberries, vanilla, red currants, candy, licorice, forest floor, green vegetables, graphite, earth and black pepper.

Light to medium in body with high acidity and nice legs.

Tart on the attack and dry on the palate, with raspberries, red currants, licorice, plums, strawberries, oak, forest floor, green vegetables, herbs, earth, pencil lead and peppercorn.

Medium plus in finish with soft tannins and tart cranberries.

A good quality red wine, but not my style.
Tart and unbalanced, however, complex and interesting.

Good food wine and not a good sipping wine.

13% alcohol by volume.
