Reversanti 2011 Barbaresco (DOCG), $16.99-$28.99, 89 points, poured a candy-apple red with a broad clear wine ring and glass bowl of considerable 'tears'.
Aromatic earthy red cherry, a hint of perfumed roses and sea breezes were excellent.
Medium-bodied with high acidity and astringent grainy tannins somewhat mismanaged flavors of cherry fruit, black tea, and mint by drowning them in the wine's structure and an unbalanced 14% alcohol.
Finished intensely on hot spices and the trailing palate.
Paired okay with our deep-dish pizza.
Comments: If intense acidity and tannin with a noticeable alcohol is a style of wine that pleases you, or you have maybe ten years to wait for this wine to be tamed (no guaranty), then this will please, especially the price.
