Tenuta L’Illuminata – La Morra 2015 – Barbera d’Alba

The nose is powerful and offers intensity and precision. It reveals notes of small wild black fruits, wild red berries and small notes of flowers, grove / scrubland, black cherry associated with discreet hints of sweet spices, pepper and olive. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a good definition, a beautiful suavity, a slight acidulous frame, a small tension, a good finesse of the grain as well as juiciness. On the palate this wine expresses notes of red berries, wild strawberry and small notes of black cherry associated with touches of blackberry, grove / olive tree, discreet hints of sweet spices as well as very discreet hints of chocolate, caramelization and toasted. Tannins are well-built, elegant and very discreetly firm. There are a hint of cocoa and a hint of olive tree on the persistence.
