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

Herbaceous, vanilla aroma. Strong dried strawberry flavor with some tobacco. Tart and refreshing. Pairs well with dark chocolate.

Red fruit Barbera, delicious and medium-bodied with tons of sour/wild strawberry and, surprisingly, pencil shavings on the nose. Must be the tannins.

Tart on the palate, a bit too bright, fruity but not too much, good balance - fine finish but still a bit too much tart (acidic?). Fine Barbera D’ Alba but many, many are better yes, “Oh Italia!”
