La Spinetta Cà di Pian 2008 Barbera d'Asti,
$23.79-$27.99, 92 points, breaks with a blood-red color; I have never seen such a color in a wine! Of course the rim is clear.
Earth, mushrooms, and red cherry spice lead the nose.
Satin smooth medium-plus body with mild to moderate tannin and good acidity carries fine flavors of trace violets, spearmint, licorice, and menthol, but black cherry fruit is more noticeable.
The palate transitions deep into the very long finish that adds spice, yet concludes with a mouth coating of menthol and just touch of warmth (14% alcohol).
