95% Barbera, 5% Nebbiolo.
Distributor Notes: "San Fereolo’s 2013 'Austri' is a singular wine of notable expressiveness, power, and energy that requires 30 minutes to stretch before serving in Bordeaux stems. The dark-toned fruits announce themselves with a roar: sappy black cherry, cassis, roasted plums, and wild black raspberry before joining forces with leather, mountain herbs, espresso, cedar, tobacco, and a touch of barnyard. The brooding, medium-plus-bodied palate is framed by extremely fine tannins and a steady flow of acidity that enhances the fierce mineral core of crushed black stone and fired clay.
It’s a powerful yet resoundingly poised Piedmontese red with multiple dimensions to offer so please savor it slowly—we suggest over two nights."
