What an excellent value Barbera. Berries and bright acidity. Pinot or Beaujolais-esque. Paired incredibly well with farfalle, sweet sausage, tomatoes, and cream sauce.

A lot of bright fruit followed by light tannins and bright acidity. Tastes similar to what I remember barbera tasting like when I first had it.

I'd drink it but that's not saying much.. Takes a lot of skill and a good vintage to make an interesting Barbara. Cheap though,
