Cantine del Glicine Barbera d'Alba "La Dormiosa” DOC 2012
Intense ruby red color, rich and wide nose of plum and pomegranate, roses, with hints of liquorice, balanced in mouth with the right roundness and tannic component, fruity-spicy long finish. In honor of an ancient local tradition grapes are vinified by adding, during fermentation, 10-15% of Nebbiolo grapes from Barbaresco to make the wines softer and enhance their fragrances. The result is surprisingly elegant and complex, on both nose and taste, with all the components well mixed and matched. It's rounded but with the right tannin, elegant and extremely pleasant to drink. Fresh fragrant fruits are mixed with liquorice and roses hints, the acidity is well expressed and it has a very long finish.
