Elvio Cogno - Barbera d'Alba Bricco dei Merli 2020
Wine Enthusiast: 92 Points
Starting with its bright ruby color to its long-lasting finish, this is a classic Barbera. Aromas of bright tart cherries and wild raspberries mixed with fresh herbs and forest floor. The palate is electric with vibrant acidity, amazing texture and wild fresh plums mixed with deep earthy notes
Wine Spectator: 91 Points
A supple, even creamy texture embraces the blackberry, plum and leather flavors in this concentrated red. Firms up, with well-meshed tannins flexing on the finish. Drink now.
Wine Advocate: 91 Points
In a production of 10,000 bottles, the 2020 Barbera d'Alba Bricco dei Merli is broad, rich and generous. There is plenty of meat on these bones, and the wine is capped off by sweet notes of blackcurrant or blackberry confit. You might also recognize some baked cherry that characterizes the vintage. The grape's acidity is softened in this hot vintage.
