The brilliant ruby color tends to become garnet with age. Expect intense fruity aromas of prune and mulberry with a hint of spice. The full-bodied wine envelopes with perfectly balanced acid. Dry, fresh and fragrant, this wine lingers on the palate with traces of plum, blackberry and cherry.
A wine that can be served throughout the meal, very good with first course, grilled or roasted red meat, and soft mature cheeses. Best up to five years after vintage year.
Barbera is the wine that best represents the quiet strength of the Piedmont winegrower. It is a favorite everyday wine of the region and pairs beautifully with a wide range of foods – and is perfectly enjoyable alone. This ancient varietal has been cited in works by great poets like Giosuè Carducci and Giovanni Pascoli. It is consistently topping the list of the region’s favorite grapes and continues to grow in popularity.
