2017 Daniele Conterno, Barbera d’Alba Superiore (RT 92) 25,00 bottle production. Crafted from fruit sourced from Monforte d’Alba, Barolo, Novello, aged for one year in Slavonian botti. Showing a medium ruby hue with a purplish tinge, bright notes of sweet red raspberry, mentholated cherry, herbs and hints of lavender dominate. The palate is rich, ripe and well balanced with tasty fresh acidity that maintains its food-friendly character. A beautifully crafted expression of the grape and a terrific food wine. This should be an excellent mid-term ageworthy bottling. The previous vintage was a “Hot Pick” on my website and this vintage is even tastier! Drink now-2029+
