What a gorgeous sheen of purple this thing has when you pour it. Aromatically the first whiff is all about these dark plum and wild black cherry characters but a vigorous swirl and the aniseed, fennel frond, baking spice and burnt orange peel notes start to appear and they waft through those bigger, bolder aspects. It hits the palate with a burst of cool but reasonably large scaled and mouth-filling fruit that is layered with interest and detail but also delivers on the deep, sumptuously fruited promise the nose hinted at. Barbera really hits its peak in years like 2017 and this is another polished and flawlessly delivered example from one of the masters of the style. ROSCOE
