This wine once again demonstrates Mauro’s unique alchemist touch and a signature like no other winemaker in the world. I never have imagined that a Barbera could taste and feel like Mauro’s *La Grisa*. He’s managed to put a bright light and deep darkness into the same bottle of wine; it’s black as ink, which makes it somehow intimidating to even taste. Inside this wine aged for half a year in old 5000 liter botte are aromas of a thick, dank and wet green forest with taut but mature wild black berries, black currant and a potpourri of underbrush. The palate is powerful, supple and somehow fine at the same time. Its explosive bright acidity keeps this brooding wine in perfect harmony.
