DescriptionBarbera d'Asti 1997
Ai Suma, Braida (G. Bologna)
"Unquestionably one of the most massive Barberas ever made, the blockbuster 1997 Ai Suma (800 cases) reveals off the chart density as well as a terrific bouquet of smoke, blackberries, cherry liqueur, licorice, and violets. With exquisite richness and amazing harmony for such a gargantuan wine, this full-bodied giant should drink well for 10-15 years. However, its low acidity and almost over the top richness give it immediate appeal. It is a very sexy effort! This is a very impressive Barbera!" (95 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #130, Aug. 2000)
