LWF favorites recap: Barbara? Barbra? BARBERA!

Ceste Barbera d'Alba Superiore

Grape(s): Barbera 💯

Producer: Ceste

Wow ... the nose is everything! Crafted with pride by a talented winemaker, this D.O.C. Italian wine is hypnotically enticing. The ripeness takes my mind immediately to sun-facing hillsides. At 15% abv, the boost is understandably essential to carry the load of this succulent offering. Rich, red berry fruit barely surpass the oaky undertones to seize the spotlight in this well crafted selection. Suave tannins and a medium acidity compliment the nose quite nicely culminating all the way to the obvious finale: delicious!
