Enzo Boglietti 2016 Barbera D'Alba (DOC), $15.99-$19.99, 91 points, poured broadly opaque terminating purple/red at the clear wine ring and glass bowl thickly lined with tinted legs.
The nose was widely purple grape-like with nuanced cocoa, juniper, dusty truffle, and a perfumed floral vibe.
This near full-bodied red wine is very busy, lively, and youthful; showing bright acidity and slightly astringent tannin, this food friendly Barbera delivered tart blue/black fruits trimmed with fennel and allspice.
Finished quite long on the trailing palate and a warm 14.5% alcohol energized pepper spiciness.
Paired well with our Mexican cuisine.
