What We’re Drinking – 2010 Coppo Barbera d’Asti Pomorosso

A luxurious silky palate of dark fruits, blueberry and black cherry, with a touch of real black licorice. Tannins are pillow soft. Fruit on the mid-palate goes from round to tart, bright enough to match anything you throw at it. Drink with mushroom risotto. Highly Recommended 93 points. DBH
