Prunotto Barbera d’Asti Costamiòle Riserva 2017
Ripe, rich, and dizzyingly complex, the 2017 Barbera Costamiòle Riserva leaps from the glass with a shower of juicy red and brambly black fruits, layers of sweet spices, pressed violet petals, melted chocolate, cigar leaf, and new leather. This silky wine fills the mouth with elegant tannins, tingles the tongue with fresh acidity, and thrills the senses with the play between its sweet inner perfume and savory underpinnings. Enjoyable upon release with aeration, this wine will age nicely over the medium term.
