"Medium-bodied, with raspberry and blueberry aromas, delicious fruit and vanilla and cream hints. Drink now." (WS)

"The 2008 Barbera Briccotondo is a big, juicy wine loaded with dark fruit that shows a surprising level of ripeness at this level. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2012." (WA)

Winery Notes:
This is a ruby-red wine with purple highlights. The nose is packed with black fruit, especially blackberries and plums, with slight spicy overtones hinting at black pepper and cinnamon. Sweet, soft tannins come together in a closely woven texture merging with the fruit, while a crisp freshness provides a long, tasty finish.
