Cascina Val del Prete – Carolina 2016 – Barbera d’Alba Superiore

The nose is fruity, slightly powerful and offers a very slight concentration. It reveals notes of crushed redcurrant, balsamic and small notes of cassis associated with discrete hint of grove / scrubland. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers suavity, a small density, fat, a small straightness, a slight acidulous frame, a small minerality as well as a beautiful and slightly powdered grain. On the palate this wine expresses notes of crushed redcurrant, crushed raspberry and small notes of blueberry associated with small notes of violet, sweet spices, chocolate as well as a very discreet hint of cardamom. Tannins are slightly powdered.
