Barba Vignafranca 2009

Member Review by jamessulis:

I did not find this wine to my liking. Was thin and I noted lack of dark fruit. After reading other reviews for this wine perhaps my bottle was defective.

A toasty, high-toned version, with dark mesquite, roasted coffee, and mulled Christmas spices leading to a chewy, lingering core of roasted plum and cherry reduction. Drink now.

Dark red. Aromas of blackcurrant, dark cherry, licorice and bitter chocolate, plus a whiff of tar. Suave and juicy, with ripe acidity framing the herbal dark berry and underbrush flavors. Finishes with well-buffered tannins and lingering minty and earthy nuances. Nicely balanced montepulciano.

Barba’s 2009 Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Vignafranca is an attractive wine loaded with juicy dark fruit, tar, licorice and a host of dark aromas and flavors. There is a lot to like in this generous, approachable entry-level wine from Barba. Anticipated maturity: 2013–2014.

This Montepulciano d’Abruzzo shows a juicy, rich feeling with bold cherry fruit, blackberry and a touch of bitter chocolate. It’s a broad, heavy wine with ripe intensity and thick texture. Pair it with rustic, hearty country foods.
