Cascina Val del Prete – Serra de’ Gatti 2017 – Barbera d’Alba 

The nose is fruity, powerful and offers concentration. It reveals notes of blackberry, wild red berries and small notes of gray pepper associated with small touches of cherry, garrigue, wild small fruits as well as hints of spices and a very discreet hint of flowers (in the background). The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a beautiful acid frame, a fine suavity, tension, a very fine freshness (in the background) as well as a small racy minerality. On the palate this wine expresses notes of crunchy redcurrants, small wild berries and small notes of blackberry, cherry associated with fine touches of purple fig, flowers as well as discreet hints of spices. Tannins are well-built. There is a very discreet hint of chocolate on the persistence.
