I wouldn’t call the ’05 Barbera ‘d Asti “Tre Vigne” a voluptuous beauty, but there’s no arguing, it’s got some swing in its backyard. This dark glass of finery gets darker in its splendor with cordoroy tannins steeped in blackberry cream. All business in the front with a party in the back, the finish is submerged in a smooth, clean cherry bonbon. Wipe on, wipe off — all in one fell swoop. ‘Now use your head for something other then a target’ little man.
