Ca'Viola Bric du Luv 2010 (Italy: Piedmont)

Name Ca'Viola Bric du Luv 2010
Varietal Barbera (DOC)
Region Italy: Piedmont
Notes "A hint of green olive adds a grace note to the cherry and raspberry flavors in this racy Barbera. Still tight, leaving a mouthwatering impression on the finish. Should open up pleasantly. Drink now through 2020. 550 cases made." (Wine Spectator) "The estate's 2010 Barbera d'Alba Bric du Luv is another rich, resonant wine endowed with considerable depth in its fruit. Juicy dark raspberries, spices, French oak, new leather and tobacco take shape in the glass as the old-vine Bric du Luv shows off its considerable weight and power." (Antonio Galloni, Vinous)
