Marchesi di Barolo 1998 Barbera (Monferrato)

Brisk acidity and a lean but smooth profile characterize this taut, somewhat tart wine. A very inviting vouquet with cherry, cinnamon, clove, cedar, and tobacco notes sets a pretty stage for the palate, but after the great setup the wine delivers rather uninspired and predictable tart berry and sour cherry Barbera flavors. The sour plum and earth finish is full but quite dry.
