Description Technical Specs (May be in Italian If There Is Not an English Version Available)
 
When young, most Barbera wines have a bright-red cherry character, distinguished from Nebbiolo (which often overshadows Barbera) by softer tannins and a certain roundness. When matured in barrel and allowed to age in bottle for a few years, this turns to a denser, sour-cherry note.
Aged for 8 - 9 months in steel tank, this Barbera is a ruby red color, with very intense aromas of red fruits like cherry and blackberry. Medium bodied, velvety and high acidity, which is typical of the grape. This wine can be paired with sausage or spicy foods.

5 of 5 very nice Barbera December 30, 2021
Reviewer: Mario Farris from Sf Ca  
Plum and oak on the nose. Deep purple color. The main notes are raspberry, cola, and mild leather. Medium to full-bodied with moderate tannins. Serving it with vegetarian chili!
