Ex-Col d'Orcia winemaker Mario Olivero has revitalised this historic estate. Superb vineyard, highly refined winemaking and total belief in Barbera are the keynotes. Alfiera is the splendid top wine. Look also for the super-value Barbera La Tota. DECANTER

(Screwcap) Vibrant and shimmering opaque red/purple colour. The nose is textbook where dark fruits mingling with dried herbs, violets, a thread of vanilla and dark chocolate shavings all carry enlivening acidity you’d expect from the variety. The palate is all dark plum and cherry, racy and energetic. There’s density and smoothness punctuated by some lovely oak spice. Utterly delicious wine that will age for 5-8 years and can pair with pretty much anything but maybe best with a ragu and pasta. Screwcap. MICHAEL MCNAMARA, PWS
