Producer: Fontana Fredda
Medium Bodied, Satisfying
Black Fruit, Baking Spice, Soft Tannins
I doubt that you could find a better barbera for this price in the States! This wine is packed full of fruit without being jammy. Light notes of pepper and baking spice from time in oak add complexity and intrigue to the blackberry and plum fruit notes. Fresh acidity, which is characteristic of barbera, makes the wine feel light and fresh. Soft tannin gives the satisfying knock out punch. This wine is a great way to start off a dinner party. It pairs well with many appetizers including cured meats and fresh and aged cheeses.
