We've managed this year to get one whole barrel! Only ten are made. Somtimes we get none, such is the demand for this delicious and great value Piemontese wine. A barrel equates to 25 cases. Pozzo, meaning water well, is an excellently sited special cru in La Morra planted with 60 year old vines. It ages deliciously. When young you would be best decanting. You can expect stewed plums, espresso, roses, pine; it's plush and smooth with lots of fruit. You can age it for ten years or more and it's as it best between 4 and 10 years.


Robin's Note:

This comes from the same producer as Barolo from Corino, but Barbera is a different grape. It can be quite acidic, like Nebbiolo, but it terns to be more charming. This will age well but enjoy i t now while it's plump fruity and lovely.
