CASCINA CHICCO 2012 BARBERA D'ALBA GRANERA ALTA

WINE SPECTATOR 91 POINTS - "A rich and saturated red, featuring black currant, blackberry and pepper aromas and flavors. Though firm, this remains well-integrated, with fruit and spice notes lingering on the finish. Drink now through 2018. 4,000 cases made." –BS

This is fantastic juice from one of the top producers in Piemonte, Italy. Their vineyards (their first familial purchase in the 1950s was a hectare of land not far from the Canale d'Alba) are located in the best Barbera-producing regions of Roero-- the northern part of d’Alba and just south of d’Asti. Third generation winemaker Federico Faccenda has taken Cascina Chicco to the next level since taking over in the 1980s, integrating modern winemaking technologies, with Roero Arneis DOCG being one of his excellent results. This is easy-to-drink, approachable wine-- you can enjoy it with or without food. It is quite well balanced with great acidity, soft texture and smooth tannins. The eye sees a bright ruby color, with aromas and tastes of uplifting cherry and lovely dark fruits, hints of spice. The finish is long, savory and relaxed. Drink for next 3-4 years.
