A lovely translucent ruby color leads to meaty, gamey aromas and hints of leather and tar. Showing great clarity on the palate, the wine presents suggestions of black plums, dark cherries, tar and cured meats. Fine tannins and brisk acidity frame the Barbera on its long, lip-smacking finish, which spotlights complex suggestions of tar, violets, plums, black cherries, saddle leather, tobacco and calcareous earth. This is a wonderful choice for an all-purpose red that's fleshy, yet brisk and distinctive enough to delight those in the know.
Suggested Pairings: Enjoy this wine with everything from pastas to burgers to pizza to pork chops, and just about anything but artichokes and seafood.
