The 2018 Barbera d'Alba Superiore Campolive is fabulous. Rich and layered, yet also light on its feet, the 2018 is compelling right out of the gate. Older readers will remember the days when Campolive was virtually black in color, jammy and oaky. Today's Campolive delivers plenty of flavor intensity, but with far more elegance and class. Ripe red cherry/plum, spice, blood orange, cinnamon and rose petal meld into the finish. This is a fabulous showing in a vintage that was not especially favorable for Barbera. Gorgeous. The 2020 spent 16 months in cask. A reduction of the time in oak is another positive choice.Winery: Campolive is a very steep plot on the border between Serraboella and Bricco di Neive, under the road od the Montà del Bricco. Already named as such from the monks who in the past owned this site: the field of the olive (“campo dell’oliva”). Probably centuries ago dedicated to the olive trees, since its protected and warm position.
