Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, January 2008
The 2006 Barbera d'Alba is a knockout. The aromatics alone are worth the price of admission. This rich sumptuous Barbera tastes just like it did in barrel which is to say plump juicy and full of vibrant dark fruit. Notes... The 2006 Barbera d'Alba is a knockout. The aromatics alone are worth the price of admission. This rich sumptuous Barbera tastes just like it did in barrel which is to say plump juicy and full of vibrant dark fruit. Notes of iron tar and smoke that are typical of the Cascina Francia vineyard develop in the glass. The wine possesses stunning length and textural depth not to mention a finessed harmonious personality. Stylistically it is also remarkably complete as it combines the richness of fruit found in the 2003 with the greater perfume and finesse of the 2004 and 2005. It is not to be missed.
