About Our Ratings

Barbera D'Alba 2012 Bussia, Giacosa Fratelli
In Piedmont Nebbiolo is king. But close behind, Barbera is gaining many admirers. In his Italian wine book, Matt Kramer said "Barbera...can verge on being considered truly great wine with substantial fruit, flavor and depth." This Barbera D'Alba may be just the kind of wine he had in mind with that statement. Unlike a vast majority of Barbera, grapes for this wine were sourced from the prestigious Bussia sub-region of Monforte, known for great Barolos. Giacosa Fratelli ferments this wine in the traditional fashion and then ages it for one year in large oak casks. No score yet on this 2012 but the vintage was outstanding. Wine Spectator scored the 2011 90 points saying "Green olive, sandalwood, black currant and violet aromas and flavors mingle in this elegant red. Balanced and expressive, with characteristic Barbera acidity. Drink now through 2017."
