Review:

Wow. This is stunning Barbera Armujan comes from 60 year-old vines in the prime Barolo village of Monforte d'Alba. It's rich and dense, flowing with ripe fruit, sweet violet notes and spice, and hints of tar and dark chocolate. Armujan spends 18 months in barrel and cask, which which enhances its velvety texture. Great aging potential, but you'll want to drink it all up. - Marcus

Ruggeri Corsini is the husband and wife team of Nicola Argamante (vineyard manager) and Loredana Addari (winemaker). Nicola is a prominent viticulturalist who has consulted for some of the biggest names in Italian wine. Together they produce a spectacular portfolio of wine at humble prices.

Barbera Armujan wines are usually ruby-red in color. The nose is fresh, with soft scents of ripe plum, sensations that are carried through onto the palate. In Piedmont it is the wine par excellence for accompanying Bagna Cuda. Armujan, like Barolo, goes well with intensely flavored dishes based on mature and spicy cheeses. - the winery
