Color: very intense ruby red. Nose: intense aromas of plums and berries, but also of rose petals. Taste: fresh red fruits, well balanced tannins and with a pleasant acidity due to the barbera. Serving suggestion: red meats, soft to medium aged cheese, pasta, charcuterie.

Wine AdvocateThe 2008 La Villa benefits from the tannins and length of the Nebbiolo, which compensates for the lack of fruit from the Barbera in this vintage. The 2008 isn't a huge or complex La Villa, but it does show excellent balance and should drink for a number of years based on its structure and freshness. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020.
