Plaustra Barbera d'Alba 2016

I love this fresh Barbera with so many nuances! It is not your big bodied fruity wine, It is crisp, light like tissue paper with fresh fruits like strawberry and cherry but a minerally gravely stone quality to it.. just my kind of Barbera! Stainless steel only. — 5 days ago

Le Orme Superiore Barbera d'Asti 2016

Sour cherry, leather - just the right amount of tannin (slightly grippy). I had it with pepperoni pizza and it didn’t quite stand up to the zestinesa and spice of the pepperoni, but it would be great with cheese pizza and other Italian dishes with red sauce but less spice — 5 days ago

Holy Shmoly! Chocolate, cherries, vanilla. Blam! This is a tasty, smooth, full bodied barbera. Had it in Italy and loved it, had it in NJ and it holds up, it is a gem. — 4 days ago

Costa di Bussia Barbera d'Alba 2016

As with the Ruvei, another of the better Piedmont Barberas yet still affordable: medium bodied, rich color, light nose, gentle palate, smooth...balanced, dry but not too dry - enough fruit, enough tannins make this a great, pleasing wine for the not-tannic crowd and light-fruit crowd too. — 13 hours ago


Vigna Vecchia Scarrone Barbera d'Alba 2015

Fantastic! Nose of caramel, licorice, dark fruit and earth. Flavors of black fruit, vanilla, herbs, earth. Medium to full bodied, it is young, so it needs some air to open up but your patience will be rewarded. — 5 days ago

Marchesi di Barolo

Ruvei Barbera d'Alba 2016

Tim L

Marchesi d' Barola, Alba, Piedmont, Italia. Among the best of the Barola producers and this wine, Ruvei, 2016 vintage, is quite representative of the best of reasonable priced Barberas. Full-medium bodied, rich dark red with subtle dark berry flavors; discernible but not sweet bouquet, balanced with light tannins - lingers on the palate with a soft finish. Buy again and again... — 2 days ago

Gallina Barbera d'Alba Superiore 2015

Lyle Fass

Big nose. Blueberry, blackberry, red cherry, plum, spice and a general sense of cool climate. Palate is rich but with a whiplash of acidity and freshness on the finish. Very pure and clean. Good fruit and excellent hint of rusticity but also a good structure and acid spine to ensure nice aging. — 20 days ago

Umberta Barbera del Monferrato

Very easy drinking Italian red. Not too tannin (could drink on its own) but could stand up to a red meat as required. — 4 days ago
