Benchmark Barbera. Just wonderful. The dollop of Nebbiolo is the cherry on top

Solid Barbera with plenty of fruit and structure and just a bit of dirt.

Been really enjoying the barberas I've been having recently. This no different, ripe soft red fruits with tight acidity to balance it out. Such great value.

Really nice barbera, very affordable priced. Had at Bliss in San Antonio, great restaurant overall. Would definitely buy this again if I can find it

Deep berry red. Earthy, plummy aromas of deep red fruits and ripe, dusty blackberry, with a mineral or saline top note. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, with red berry fruit flavors and smooth tannins. The acidity is refreshing, but there are deep undercurrents, too, plus a bloom of bright raspberry on the finish. Nice complexity for an inexpensive Barbera d'Alba. 14% abv | $17 (Vermont)

Good everyday wine. Red fruit and spice. Don't like the synthetic cork though,
