Tom Hyland

2020 Barbera d'Asti Nizza 'Fava'


Medium-intense purple; aromas of maple syrup, blackberry and molasses. Medium-full with very good to excellent concentration. Very good acidity; lush, juicy fruit, excellent persistence, moderate tannins and notable complexity. Great varietal purity and typicity. Favà is clearly one of the true “Grand Cru” vineyards of Nizza! Very alluring now, with peak in 8-10 years, perhaps longer.
