Borgatta - 'La Borgatta' Barbera 2014
Aged and serious Barbera from a 83-yr old producer. Rustic, complex, yet lean and strikingly elegant. The fruit is very much alive and vibrant, yet it is now also showing notes of leather/ tobacco, and spices. The 2014 vintage was cooler than normal, resulting in a fresher wine but with every bit as much character. For fans of Barbaresco! Astounding wine.
Made by Emilio Oliveri, who has been working a tiny 2 hectares of land since the 60's with his wife Marisa. Now in his 80's, he is still going strong and still producing some of the best Piemonte wines we have come across in a very long time. These are wines ‘come si faceva una volta,’ a representation of tradition, of old methods, and of pure dedication. Wines infused with the energy of two of the kindest souls one is ever likely to meet.
