2008 Azienda Pier “Asnas”

image

A blend of Barbera, Nebbiolo and Petit Verdot. The nose gives away Barbera by showing amazing violets, strawberries and very lively red fruit. Though Nebbiolo makes his appearance with roses and black tea. Little forest floor/funkyness as well. On the palate firm but supple tannins, red and dark fruit. Hint of cacao. Good length and acidity which keeps the wine very quaffable yet exciting.

Drink now plus 3yrs.

At 16 Euro’s amazing value for money. 91  points.

Available at Chabrol Wines Amsterdam (Haarlemmerstraat 7 and Overtoom 444): WEBSITE
