Single Bottle - Standard - 750ml
Clove and allspice aromas and a black cherry flavor mark this firm Barbera. Fresh, but austere, with a firmly tannic finish. Drink now through 2014. 2,000 cases made.
The 2008 Barbera d’Asti Costamiole is dynamite. It shows fabulous intensity and depth in its expressive fruit, with a cool vein of minerality that provides focus and energy. A long, beautifully delineated finish adds to an overall impression of elegance. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2016. This is an impressive set of wines from Prunotto. From top to bottom, every wine in this lineup is well worth considering. It would be nice to see Prunotto take their outstanding Baroli and Barbareschi to the next level. Given the quality of their vineyards and the significant resources of the Antinori family these should be truly profound wines.
