The nose is packed with black fruit, especially blackberries and plums, with slight spicy overtones hinting at black pepper and cinnamon. Sweet, soft tannins come together in a closely-woven texture that combines with great fruit character and crisp freshness on the palate.
The 2018 Piemonte Barbera Briccotondo shows a nice dark color and a thick intensity, with a velvety texture. There is some serious concentration here but no extra emotion. It's a basic, smooth and dense red that could go well with a home-cooked vegetable stew, such as a ciambotta.
This red is light and fruity, offering cherry, raspberry and a touch of earth. Modest length. Drink now.
