Mauro Molino Barbera d'Alba 2015
The wine is crystal clear and an attractive deep ruby colour. It’s a lean, aromatic and yet savoury wine. As it opens up, the fruit really kicks in with bright cherry, raspberry and red berry notes emerging. Being Italian, it also has some liquorice, spice and tariness. The viscosity of the wine is a pleasant surprise and gives more weight than you might expect. Bright, fresh, balanced acidity makes it a great food wine that’s delicious and approachable. And at a great price.
