Barbera d'Asti DOC Superiore Fratelli Martini 2007
Tasted 01/12/10, 75cl, 13.5%. About £9 UK retail. A lovely example of the richer Barbera d'Asti style. 100% Barbera, aged in old oak. Dark red colour, rich cherries and mixed spice on the nose, dark fruits on the palate. Medium bodied with a layer of vanilla masking the fruit to some extent. Needs maybe another year. From 2011, 16.5 / 20.
