2016 Vietti Barbera d’Asti Tre Vigne

The name Vietti and Barbera are a delicious combination. The usual impeccable cleanliness and depth here. Bright and dark, tangy and just sweetly ripe berries with that Piemontese graphite rocky cut. A mouthwatering tug of fine acidity and enough rasp of tannin make another mouthful as important as simultaneous food in the belly. Oddly a relatively straightforward wine but compelling too. Armani suit for a Uniqlo dressed drinker.

14% alcohol. Diam, good. $48.

92 points.
