About Franco Amoroso 2017 Barbera d'Asti Superiore

Here's a stunning Italian red from Piedmont that's also an incredible value. Franco Amoroso is a small producer of excellent quality wines. In Asti, Barbera get's the royal treatment; prime vineyard locations and hands-on attention and care. This wine is a DOCG Superiore which is reserved for the biggest, most intense wines. This wine is aged 12 months in oak barrels (6 more than required for Superiore) and then 6 months in the bottle before release. It shows the bright vibrancy that this grape is known for but with additional backbone and hints of compelling vanilla spice from the oak.

James Suckling scored this 92 points saying "A big, rich Barbera with loads of ripe fruit and vanilla character. Full-bodied and soft and round in texture. Flavorful finish. Drink now."
