Enzo Boglietti Barbera D'Alba 2003
This is a vibrantly coloured blood red wine with the most amazing aroma of cherries and plums and slight hints of aniseed. The first thing that hits you when you taste this wine is a burst of acidity at the front of your mouth - as you would expect from an Italian wine - this should without doubt be served with either acidic foods - such as a tomato based pasta dish or an oily food where the acidity will cut through the oil. The flavours in this wine of vanilla and plums are very pleasing, although I found that sadly they did not live up to the aromas.
