Villa Toscano, Barbera, 2007

Villa Toscano is a 2007 Barbera from the Shenandoah Valley in California. It's the first Barbera I'm reviewing here. It wasn't exactly what I had expected given that the usual Barbera tannins weren't so prominent. But Toscano is very decent and pleases the palate. It has a velvety finish where nuances of chocolate can be picked up (if somewhat mixed with some faint vanilla). I would repeat, depending on the situation.
