Villa Sparina 1996 Rivalta (Barbera del Monferrato)

Oak and an odd soy sauce aroma on the bouquet. The palate struggles to escape its rather tannic, woody personality. Heavily tannic and somewhat overbearing. Positively speaking, though, the fruit is spicy and the wine is extracted enough to handle the oak.
