Review

In the increasingly rich panorama of Barbera wines, the della Madre from Ettore Germano fully deserves its place of honour. Albeit far from the lively but simple, traditional interpretations of this variety, Barbera della Madre, from the excellent Alba cru, does bring to mind this classic profile with its deep colour, but its ruby and garnet tones also show us a wine with personality.

On the nose, the aromas of red fruits and jam mingle with intense notes of undergrowth and vanilla. The palate confirms a marvellous balance between its fresh, youthful and appealing elements and others that are more evolved, full and austere. The unusual harmony between its complexity and approachability is due to excellent ageing in barrels, where this Barbera matures for a total of about 20 months.

Un vin de gastronomie

Robe rouge sang, concentrée. Premier nez sur des fruits cuits, puis viennent les notes de fruits rouges, de baies sauvages. La bouche est vive, tendue, belle matière, soutenue par l'acidité du cépage. Jolie finale salivante. Le lendemain, toujours ce parfum de fruits noirs cuits, de ronce, belle fraîcheur. Le nez est envoûtant, comme infusé. La bouche est fraîche, pas de lourdeur, l'alcool ne se fait pas sentir. Le vin a gagné en rondeur et en longueur. La finale est longue, ce goût de ronce qui titille le palais. TTB.

Premetto che solitamente la barbera non incontra i miei gusti ma questo vino mi ha davvero colpito, lo trovo eccellente. Lo ricomprero' sicuramente.

Fruité et équilibré

Ce vin est un classique Piémontais. Fruité et équilibré, je le recommande. Il surprend aussi par un côté boisé qui lui donne une certaine complexité
