90 points "Good ruby-red. Plum, currant, violet and nutty oak on the rather perfumed nose. Juicy, spicy and aromatic in the mouth, with lovely sweetness and cut. Very suave and scented barbera, with noteworthy spicy length. The crop level here was just 35 hectoliters per hectare, said Currado, adding that "Alba barbera is Grace Kelly while Asti is Mike Tyson." By the way, I find it confusing that there's a Tre Vigne from Alba and one from Asti, but Luca points out that the much smaller Alba cuvee is mostly for the European market."
