Palladino Barbera Bricco Olive 2017
Bricco delle Olive (olive ridge vineyard) is the top cru of Palladino Barbera. Mr. Palladino makes this wine like it is a Barolo with long fermentation and then aging for 15 months in small barrique barrels. Only produced in the best vintages, the wine is powerful enough to be paired with rich foods yet has friendly jammy flavors that allows it to be consumed without food if you choose.
The Palladino 2017 Barbera d'Alba Superiore Bricco delle Olive opens to a dark and penetrating color with some plummy sweetness, substantial fruit weight and dimension. It's all a bit much, and this vintage is particularly rich and heavy, taking away from some of the purity of the fruit. This was a warm vintage that produced concentrated fruit, and you taste that extra richness as a result.
All sizes are 750ml unless otherwise stated.
