Tasting Notes
Technical Details

The 2021 Barbera d’Alba Superiore Gepin is deep, flavorful with tons of character. It emerges from the Cottà cru, where the wines are naturally rich and creamy. Black cherry, plum, chocolate, leather and incense all open nicely. A year of aging in cask adds structure. What I like most about the 2021 is the combination of fruit intensity and depth, but in the restrained, classic style that is the norm here these days.
