Description: “Vietti’s 2007
Barbera d’Asti La Crena is a thrilling glass of wine.
Jammy dark fruit, minerals, spices and French oak come together
beautifully in this opulent, gorgeous La Crena. Today the
wine is naturally quite primary, but with another few years
in the bottle, it should develop plenty of tertiary nuances.
I generally have my best experiences with La Crena around
age ten, and have found it to be a wine that can stand side
by side with just about anything.”
