Giuseppe Cortese – Morassina 2015 – Barbera d’Alba

The nose is aromatic, spicy and offers a very slight power. It reveals notes of crushed cassis, small crushed black fruits, coffee and small toasted notes, bourbon vanilla associated with small touches of nutmeg, red fruits as well as a very discreet hint of caramelization. The palate is juicy, fruity and offers freshness, roundness, a small density, a small juiciness, a slight gourmandise as well as a slight acidulous frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of crushed blackberry and small crushed black fruits associated with touches of acidulous red berries, raspberry, small touches of blueberry, violet, vanilla as well as small hints of chocolate and blond tobacco. Tannins are well-built.
