Andrea Oberto 2011 Barbera d’Alba

Tasting notes intense ruby-red turning to light purple hue, due to the ageing in barriques. The nose shows oaky notes well-integrated with hints of plum and cherry in alcohol. Warm sensations in mouth thanks to its high alcohol content, with rich toasty notes of ripe fruit and jam. Sour and long finish due to its typical varietal acidity.
