“La Spinetta’s 2016 Barbera d’Asti Ca’ di Pian is soft, plummy and very tasty. I would prefer to drink it over the next few years, while the fruit remains vibrant. This is a pretty laid-back style for the Ca’ di Pian, which in the past was a much darker and more concentrated wine. Red and purplish berry fruit with a touch of spice is nicely pushed forward by bright acids. The 2016 is absolutely delicious, especially with a little aeration.” -Vinous, 90 points

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.
