Natalie's Score: 90/100

Vintages Wine Panel: Barbera may be given the Asti appellation Superiore designation only if it has been aged in oak casks or barrel for at least one year. This wine was created with the cuisine of Piedmont in mind. My note: Absolutely and divinely delicious! Full-bodied and packed with purple plum extract followed by fleshy blackberries and blueberries. Supple and so enticing. Great price.

Barbera D'asti food pairings: agnolotti, grilled meats, aged seasoned cheese.

Great wine drinking
Dan Trcka Wine Blogger 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.
Elizabeth Vickers rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
