Not flavors that don't over power. Cherries, blackberries and soft tannins.

Lovely color. Ruby red to dark royal purple. Smells nice. Flowers (roses, bearded iris and tulips?). Flavors are juicy and dense. Woodsy with cedar and cherry bark. Bit of licorice. Plenty of pies. (Cherry, strawberry, rhubarb, even a strawberry-rhubarb perhaps). All that is wrapped in a velvety, elegant mouthfeel that lingers long with just the perfect amount of bittersweet. 8 years on this is fo sure ‘keeping it real’. This is a Barbera magnifico!

Lovely dark hue. No brick red as you’d expect from an older Barbera. It’s aging beautifully. Smells of wine cellars and dried cherries. Flavor is tart and sharp. Plenty of cherries and mocha. Balance is nice. It’s a good food wine. Matches with eggplant Parmesan or red sauce and pasta perfectly. Nice bitter tannins on the tongue. A very good deal for under $5 at Grocery Outlet.
