Light and beautiful. Very drinkable right after opening. Elegant and finely balanced. WS 92 points make sense to me. At $15 at Cosco right now I am considering a case. Really good value.

Fresh, expressive black cherry, soft tannins, food-friendly acidity. Paired well with crab cakes and green beans. You'd have to be 'stunade' not to love this juicy, barely dry, easy drinking Barbera!

One to be savoured. Too bad I don't think I've ever seen it available locally.

My new favorite Barbera! Lots of dark fruit. Tannic but not overly dry.
