Ricossa Antica Casa Piemont Barbera Appassimento 2015, Italy

Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.

Fruity nose with cherries, black plums, sweet blueberries, light earth, chocolates, river rocks, light vegetables and peppercorn.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with plums, cherries, blueberries, earth, spices, peppercorn, leather and tobacco.

Nice finish with spices and fine grained tannins.

This is a nice surprise. A very nice Italian Barbera. Easy drinking with a nice mouthfeel and mild complexity. Tastes like a nice Ripasso.

Good right out of the bottle and good by itself or with food. This is a fun wine. Fruit forward, engaging and good for parties.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

88 points.

$25.
