2020 Paitin, Barbera d’Alba Superiore DOP, Campolive (RT 93+) The bouquet of the 2020 Campolive takes on far more serious, terroir-driven notes as black cherry, sous bois, old saddle leather, porcino mushroom and damp forest floor emerge from the glass. Seriously captivating on all aromatic fronts, the palate is equally delicious with caressing ripe fruit, soft acidity, and suave, ripe tannins. This is an impressive, outstanding Barbera that should age beautifully for midterm cellaring. Crafted from old vine Barbera planted in 1970, it is organically produced in a practical sense using only modest amounts of sulfur and copper in the vineyards and only when needed. Drink 2024-2034+
