2019 Patrizi Barbera d'Asti

Tasting note

2019 Patrizi Barbera d'Asti DOCG

Light ruby in colour. Pretty fruit on the nose, particularly red cherry and red plums, a little jammy, plus blackberry. Subtle hints of vanilla and yoghurt. Solid and well-integrated acidity, medium both in tannins and in alcohol. Nice fruit overall with hints of secondary aromas from the barrel ageing, but not much in terms of depth. Drinking nicely now. I would prefer to enjoy this wine slightly chilled at around 15-16 degrees Celsius.

Drink through 2025.

Wine details

Vintage: 2019
Style:still (dry)
Grape variety:

Red grape variety originating from Italy. Well-known appellations include Barbera d'Alba DOC and Barbera d'Asti DOCG in the Piedmont. Barbera is mostly used to produce single-varietal red wines (though technically certain other red grapes can be added to the assemblage to a minor extent in most appellations) with a red fruit aroma and flavour, medium to high acidity and low to medium tannins. Some producers choose to mature their wines in barrique to give them more depth and complexity.

For assemblages, the main grape variety is shown.
