TN: Barbera d'Asti.

2010 Barbera d’Asti Superiore “Old Vines”; Poderi Elia
wood, spice and plum on the nose, elegant and fresh with herbs and flowers on the palate. Quite chocolate-y and woody on the finish. A touch of must, vanilla and perfume. Nice length, but it seems a bit subdued. It hints at some depth, poise and power underneath, but it seems to fade in and out of itself. Red plum, cherry… Creamy, with some decent minerality and a salinity poking through. 61+/100
