The Ricossa Barbera Appassimento review

It is the first official Piemonte DOC Barbera to be made in the Appassimento method. This wine boasts excellent and enticing aromas including blackberries, plums, prunes, vanilla, some floral notes and chocolate. The wine tastes smooth, rich, round, soft and sweet with great depth of flavour and balance in its dark and red fruits. This is definitely a different type of Barbera but a really pleasing one at that and I love use of the Appassimento method here. It ends quite long with more sweet fruit notes and nice touches of chocolate. It may be a first but I’m guessing this won’t be the last Barbera from Piedmont made in this method, it’s delicious!
