Vintages Wine Panel: This single-vineyard Barbera gives you a taste of the latest vintage from Piedmont, and for a song! Deep purple in colour, it displays elegant aromas of ripe black cherry, plum, tobacco and hints of new oak. It’s medium bodied, with deep, dark fruit flavours balanced by lively acidity and soft tannins. My note: I recommend this wine year after year. It’s tasty, vibrant and rich in flavour yet will get you out of that cabernet/shiraz rut. Gorgeous aromas of blackberry, black cherry, licorice, spice and smoke. This wine just dances across your palate. Barbera D'alba food pairings: tomato-based pasta, chicken marengo, meat-and-cheese antipasto platter.
