Cascina Bongiovanni 2016 – Barbera d’Alba

Cascina Bongiovanni 2016 – Barbera d’Alba

The nose is aromatic, fruity and offers a small intensity. It reveals notes of boysenberry, small wild fruits and small notes of crushed blue fruits, crushed red berries, black cherry associated with small touches of violet, Zan as well as a very discreet hint of scrubland, spices and an imperceptible hint of rosemary. The palate is fruity, well- balanced, suave, elegant, a bit tight and offers a beautiful definition, delicacy, a small tension, a slight freshness, a small minerality, a good guideline as well as an acidulous frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of black cherry, acidulous red berries and small notes of flowers (violet, rose) associated with small touches of blackberry, a hint of blueberry as well as discreet hints of sweet spices and chocolate. Tannins are well-built, fine, a bit young and already a bit supple. Good length. Good persistence.
