"Dark ruby magenta, the 2020 Barbera D'Asti Ca Di Pian was raised in second- and third-use French oak barrels. It's highly aromatic, with loads sweet perfume of mixed red and black berries, ripe peaches, and violets. Medium-bodied, it moves seamlessly to the palate, with decadent ripe fruit and its floral notes lasting on the finish along with a bit of vanilla. Drink over the next 4-6 years."
