2006 Vietti Barbera d’Alba Tre Vigne (Italy, Piedmont, Alba, Barbera d’Alba)

Alba, Barbera d'Alba, Italy, Piedmont, Red Wine

This is one of the best Barberas I’ve ever had. It does show the typical baking soda and cherry on the nose and palate, but it’s so interesting and multi-faceted on the palate with layers of fruit, tobacco, leather, earth, and did I mention the laser focused plum and black cherry fruit? Just an amazing wine, especially considering it’s low price. Given that a 2004 I had recently was seemingly over the hill, I won’t advocate holding this one. It’s delicious right now and ready to please. Time to pop these with some pasta, pizza, or in our case tonight, roast chicken.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
