Castel San Giorgio 2005 Becco Giallo Riserva Barbera (Oltrepò Pavese)

Here's a simple Barbera from northern Italy that offers mature tones of dried currants, plums and prunes. From the 2005 vintage, the Riserva expression also shows tertiary aromas of spice and smoke and there's a blast of fresh acidity and peppercorn on the close.
