I had the opportunity to taste this wine directly coming from the city of Antakya at the last Sommelier’s Sélection event in November in Istanbul. I remember I got a positive feeling and was looking for a new tasting at home.
Here we are, it’s Christmas time, all the conditions are met to taste this wine coming from holy ground (the first church ever built can be found in Antakya’s region).
On the nose, aromas of rose, strawberry jam, English sweet, sour cherry, banana and some peppery notes. Not bad at all!
Acidity is good, it’s quite fruity on the palate with medium high tannins.
Flavours are quite nice with raspberry, red currant, coco, some spices and some violet in the finish.
A very interesting wine. It reminds me a Gamay but a more tannic and oaky one.
Some grilled barbecued red meat should pair well with this Barburi.
