March 04, 2014

From: Piemonte, Italy

Price: $15

Serve with: Pasta dishes, red meats

This wine shows the softer side of Barbera, an under-rated red wine that can be hard-edged in youth.

It offers complex flavors of black, cherry, spices, smoked meat and vanilla. It's a very smooth red wine that can be drunk with pleasure now.
