90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - December 2009

Bright, dark red.  Aromas of sour cherry, licorice, minerals, menthol and candied violet.  Juicy, spicy and vibrant; at once cool and ripe, displaying lovely floral lift and energy.  With its youthfully medicinal character and fine-grained tannins, this lively barbera should be very flexible at the dinner table.

I like Barbera, usually let it age for several years before drinking it. I found this wine a little lighter bodied than I had hoped. It's certainly ready to drink, though.

Barbera

Piedmont may be famous for its Nebbiolo-based wines, Barolo and Barbaresco, but the inhabitants of this region in Northwest Italy don't drink these big, tannic wines on an everyday basis. When it comes to a weekday dinner's accompaniment, they usually turn to Barbera (when not drinking the other everyday wine of the region, Dolcetto.) With this in mind, it's no surprise that...
