Serious style of Barbera D’Asti. Dark fruit, cherry, chalk, fennel, mushroom, wild berry, medium body, soft-ish tannins, good acid and raspberry preserve on the finish. Love this, will be amazing after a few years plus.

From the depths of studying-Italy-is-hell I bring you Barbera-is-heaven. Seriously WHY are we not coveting all the (good) Barbera. This is the stuff and people still don’t know so the price is...oh wait, hush, don’t tell anyone! I’d like to keep buying it at these prices though it deserves far more. It goes down like flower-enchanted Pinot Noir that is unmistakably Italian. It just has that extra kick of sour and earth that alerts one from whence it came. It’s all vibrant red fruits and pickled things and maybe some balsamic and maybe all those things had a yacht party in oak. New and used. Like this wine’s soul.

A Barbera with a gorgeous perfume of fennel, anise seed, wild roses, and plum skin, plus something tawny and dusty, too, like harvest fruit, like earth, like autumn. It’s attenuated and linear along the tongue, very pure, with glistering acidity and a clean, squeaky-tannic finish. This is a superlative food wine; pour it with pesto, marinara, pizza, fish, poultry, cheeses. It could (maybe should) become your staple, weeknight wine. 14% abv | $18 (sample)
