Eraldo Viberti 1999 Barbera d'Alba Vigna Clara

Opaque, reddish-purple at the edges.

Smell of prunes, cherry, leather.

Fruit dominates the flavor, black plum, black cherry, mild oak, long food-friendly finish that so characterizes Barbera.

Excellent medium-to-full-bodied bottle, $24.99. Impressive fruit for a wine with this much age on it.
