In our blind tasting group, only 1 of 5 nailed this as Barbera. Less extracted and lighter in weight, the ripeness in this fruit made us think we were drinking something from southern Italy. My guess is that some of this Barbera was picked a little later in the harvest. Value wine for sure, but I've had better for the price.

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.

Cherry blossoms on the nose. Really a more floral aroma than I was expecting. Easy and goes down smooth. Some hints of spice but lots of bright, red, ripe fruit. Cherry and some hints of strawberry. Nice work.
