|Dan Trcka rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
The medium bodied Ricossa Barbera D'asti Superiore 2007 is made from a higher quality grape that was aged in oak for more than two years. It is lightly aromatic, with fruity to INTEGRATED notes of blackberry, black currant, oak and vanilla. Tannins are refined (decant for 15 to 30 min), acidity is nicely balanced and the finish is medium to long and smooth. It is good to drink now or can be easily aged for another 10 years. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 90 pts - I recommend this wine as it goes well with food or can be enjoyed by itself. Tasted during Italian wine tasting, where overall it was well received. Nov/10.
