A single parcel cru, aged in barrique, 20% new. Complex in both its mineral and fruit dimensions, this shit is awesome….
Here””s the Antonio Galloni review:
“One of the many highlights among these new releases, the 2010 Barbera d’Alba Pairolero is all about tension and inward minerality. Firm yet well-integrated tannins and the freshness of a very late harvest mark this vivid, utterly breathtaking Barbera. Readers will want to cellar the 2010 for a few years, and drink the 2009 earlier. A pure, crystalline finish rounds things out in style. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019.” 92 points
