“Elegant is not a word applicable to most Barberas, but this one is exactly that: a graceful expression of dark plums, blueberries and mandarin oranges. Medium body, fine, silky tannins and bright plums on the finish.” – James Suckling

Barbera

A unique grape varietal made to be enjoyed by everyone, for everyday, and any time. This is the quintessential, great-valued, Italian red wine for all occasions. Barbera is naturally high In acidity giving you that lip-smacking feeling and boasts traditional flavors of tart cherry, strawberry, blackberry, violet, pepper, dried herbs and spices. Home to Italy’s northern region of Piedmont, Barbera can tend to sit in the shadows next to its bold friend, Nebbiolo. However, Barbera wines are juicy, flavorful, approachable, and affordable; Making them the perfect go-to red wine for all palates! Try pairing Barbera with roasted veggies or dishes that can match the spice and herb flavor profile.

These foothills provide different aspects and altitudes allowing for a variety of elegant, aromatic, and earthy wines to be grown. However, the primary grapes of Piemonte are the black varieties of Nebbiolo, Barbera and Dolcetto and the white varieties of Cortese and Moscato (Muscat). Within Piemonte are many other designated smaller wine regions famous for their specific varietals including Barbaresco, Barolo, Asti, and Alba.
