Renato Ratti Barbera d'Alba "Torriglione" 2005
A beautiful dark red color introduces a spicy nose with hints of blackcherries and plums. Surprisingly full, warm, and robust with a long finish. With La Morra as its origin and eight months in French oak barrique under its belt, this modern Barbera is super-soft and accessible to all. The Ratti family's entire portfolio has proven quite exceptional.
