2003 Parusso Barbera d'Alba Superiore - Drew - 12-07-2012 12:54 AM
A truly wonderful wine. Purchased from Last Bottle at $17 per it drinks like more than twice the tariff. Dark in the glass, flavors of dark cherry, blackberry, tar, dark chocolate, mineral and a tad of funk. Really nice medium to full body, well balanced, smooth and lush with good acid and just a touch of oak.

Popped another last night to pair with homemade pizza. Fresh, homemade thin crust with a mushroom red sauce, wilted garlicky spinich, sliced chicken and fresh mozzerella. We were very pig like . It's hard to keep my hands off of this wine. It's so food friendly but rich at the same time. Perfectly aged at this point and I really don't see it getting any better but should hold for several more years and I still have a little less than a case left.

I really do love the annual releases of barberaand Dochetto. Lower priced to be sure but i love the character of the wines.
