Buy Barbara & Dolcetto from great producers of Barolo. Period. Works like a charm, every time.

Dark cherry, blackberry, raspberry, plum, stewed blueberries, tobacco leaf, leather, woody, hint of spice and nice round tannins that finish elegant.

On the nose, this is a fresh cherry skin aroma... On the palate, cherry, red currant, and raspberry... A real freshness throughout with vibrant acidity that worked really well with my duck dish. Alive!

First of five fun, fantastic, and frugal wines for everyday drinking. The kind that, on the third glass, make you make realize what wine is really about… Barbera from Piedmont. This has a purple tint with highly ripe fruit and leather aromatics. Dry with heavy fruit and acid on the pallet. Medium plus body and alcohol, tannic, with a light finish but surprisingly balanced. Around twenty bucks a bottle and perfect for fast casual food. PS Decanting is optional but highly recommended and aging is not necessary but will pay off greatly.

Fresh, juicy, uncomplicated Barbera from 15-20 years old vines in Castiglione Falletto and La Morra. Fermented in stainless steel and aged in French oak for 16 months. Bright ruby color. Red fruit and earthy notes. Medium-bodied, tart red fruit (sour cherry, strawberry) on the palate. Light tannin, racy acidity.

Dark cherries, tobacco, tar, and bracing acidity to tackle tomatoes. Lots of northern Italian spice. Black cherries.
A cleansing mouthfeel that refreshes.
Big in the mouth. Always a great wine
