Here’s a slightly more sophisticated and evolved Barbera d’Asti from the 2008 vintage. There are notes of fresh fruit, spice, wet earth and a touch of natural rubber. The wine is exceedingly crisp, clean and polished in the mouth. Very nice, simple and pure.
A luminous, golden wine with intense mineral and chalkboard aromatics backed by less intense honey, earthy, musty and fruity smells. Floral notes do not emerge strong on the nose, but they certainly do in the mouth, where sweet honeysuckle lingers on a foamy finish.

This Moscato d’Asti probably won’t last long, so drink it now. The wine’s aromas have turned to apricot, mature peach and apple. The mouthfeel is crisp and laced with more apple flavors on the finish.
