2017 Paitin, Barbera d’Alba Superiore DOP, Campolive (RT 93) The deeply hued 2017 Campolive reveals the merits of longer aging of older Barbera vines planted in 1970. This is an organic wine that uses only modest amounts of sulfur and copper in the vineyards and only when needed. Showing a deep, rich bouquet that bursts with ripe blackberry plums, sour cherry, herbs and a streak of Piedmont minerality. The aromatic package is impressive leading to a broad-shouldered palate with generous fruit, pliant acidity and surprisingly firm tannins. A truly fine showing for this age-worthy Barbera.
