88 Points Robert Parker
Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2012 Limited Release Barbera is scented of red currant jelly, kirsch and rose hip tea with hints of dusty earth and cinnamon stick. Medium-bodied, it offers a good concentration of varietally expressive, red berry flavors in the mouth framed by chewy tannins and balanced acidity. It finishes medium to long. Drink it now to 2017.
