Boroli Barbera d'Alba Quattro Fratelli 2007, Barbera Wine

Boroli Barbera d'Alba Quattro Fratelli 2007, Barbera Wine

Origin: Italy - Italy
Characteristics: Catch but a glimpse of its deep, dark color and this is sure to be one of the heftiest Barbera d’Alba to date. The nose is dense with low and luring notes of spice box, flower petals and cherry pits after that uniquely Piemontese fashion. Is it a matter of the fruit behind these varietal wines or the land of this region itself? A combination to be sure. On the palate it is tightly spun and vibrant with tarred notes melding with cherries, spices and a textural tannin that reinforces that cherry pit nuance lending this so much character. Well structured, broadly textured and perhaps more savory than other Barbera d’Alba, this “Quattro Fratelli” beckons for feasting and has the pluck to stand up to rich lamb, tomato heavy sauces, and perhaps most especially the gifted gastronomia [that’s charcuterie for you Francophone chefs out there] for which Italy is rightly proud. Foodie wine par excellance. 14% alcohol by volume.

Alto Moncayo Aquilon 2010 
Characteristics: Garnacha, known to most of the English speaking world by its French name Grenache, is actually as Spanish as Don Quixote. Grown under the Iberian sun, Garnacha thrives even during water stress and serious heat to yield spicy berried wines with hefty yet integrated alcohol, mild and juicy acids and a charming, hearty personality. These are: clap you on the back, I’m here for you! sorts of wines. They are a pleasure to simply knock back young or as a tasty treat to wash down tapas, cheese, and olives. Although Garnacha may be the most widely grown red variety the world over, Spain offers a home turf that thoroughly develops the best flavors of this long and late ripening variety.

Atalaya Almansa 2010 
Characteristics: Rich dark reds of Spain may be nothing new but when it hails from Almansa’s dry climate you can always rely on deep extraction and full ripe fruit. In the case of La Atalaya this is 85% Garnacha Tintorera (perhaps you enjoy it as Alicante Bouchet –the red fleshed grape aka teinturier that imparts color, fragrance and power) and 15% Monastell (the indigenous Spanish variety that the Rhone celebrates as its own Mourvèdre; floral, earthen, and penetrating). Tobacco, cola spices and deep red berries on the nose transform onto the palate and round out into deeply spiced black cherries, sandy tannins, waxy vanilla bean and a rich fragrance that lifts on through the finish in all its shades and hues reading much like the spectrum of aromas, presence and flavors as we look forward to finding on great Port but without the heady fortified strength –a truly moving wine unique to Almansa.
