Fruity aromas of wild berry and plum mingle with whiffs of ground pepper on this delightfully easy-drinking red. The aromas carry over to the fresh, soft palate along with supple tannins. Drink in the next year or two to enjoy the juicy fruit.
A fluid version, boasting plum and black cherry flavors, with hints of tamarind and almond. Ends with a dusting of firm tannins. Drink now. 41,700 cases made, 13,344 cases imported.
The 2017 Piemonte Barbera Briccotondo is a great find for value hunters. It is sticky and rich, easygoing and ripe. Pair it with roast chicken cacciatore. The wine should be easy to find with a whopping 500,000 bottles made.
