This was a fantastic Barbera. An instant favorite. Especially for $36 at Damians.

Fantastic fruit forward, very smooth finish...light but complex too. Solid choice for pork roast and light roasted vegetables. Gimme more!

This generous rating may be the result of not drinking enough Barbera. Shame on me. Somehow I always end up drinking French/German. Cherry, raspberry, grilling spices, roasted wood. Medium body, high lasting acid, medium (-) tannin. Wishing for a second glass...

Really quite full in style. Colour deep red/ purple. Nose of plums and spices and a palate that although quite simple is very attractive

Colour: brick red, bright ish
Nose: lifted leather and spices, underlying red fruits, some lifted aromatics of stewed cherries
Palate: Rich and dry, depth enhanced by food oak supporting the stewed fruits

Lightly tart cherry notes; good acidity, smooth. This would probably go well with eggplant parm and marinara.
