Fans of Barbera will want to give this late-harvest version a try, a wine with plenty of toffee and oak on the nose that's sweet and fruity, rustic in the right ways, though tasting a little overripe on the finish. Residual sugar is listed at 3.3% by weight; the sugar at harvest was 31 degrees Brix.
