Vietti's Barbera d'Asti La Crena is from a single-vineyard in the town of Nizza. From vines planted in 1947, this is truly one of the most important Barbera wines in the entire region of Asti. Explosive and racy, it is an extremely energetic wine filled with understated power and finesse. This should not be missed.

94 POINTS, VINOUS:
The 2016 Barbera d'Asti La Crena is powerful but also linear, with all of the energy that is typical of the Barberas of Asti. La Crena needs a good bit of bottle age to be at its best, so readers should plan on being patient. Today, the 2016 is a tightly wound ball of energy. Time in the glass brings out hints of smoke, graphite, dried flowers, lavender and spice, all of which will blossom in a few years or more. The 2016 is a bit less bombastic than some other recent editions have been, and that is for the best. The 2016 is simply fabulous.
